WEI XIAO DEY YU / The smiling fish
This is a tender and emotional rich story. Under the quiet surface is a man’s deep sorrow. The lonely man follows the glimmering fish jump into the cold ocean, to experience the long forgotten freedom. It’s a wonderful experience for a trembling heart looking for comfort.
