2m., 2f. / Full Length, Comedy / Interior George shoots a schnauzer and brings it triumphantly back to Zee, who stuffs his pillowcase with bloody fish parts. Fighting ensues, and the flood water outside is rising. For some reason, teenager daughter Annie dreams of escape from all this. Into their mountain cabin stumbles poor Frank, the perfect replacement for the son they lost. Now if only they can keep him without killing him, too. A Fish Story is a funny, engaging yarn (Modesto Bee) about coming to terms with loss and the love that transcends the damage a family can do to itself. You won t want this one to get away, wrote the Union (CA) Democrat. It s hilarious. I like poignancy laced with humor, and A Fish Story gave me more than my limit of laughs. A Fish Story has four characters, one set, and exactly one twist more than you think. "
