Given and the Big Fish

For children aged 3+

Six year old Given and his family set out on a quest to follow the legend of the Big Fish. For years his father told him the tale as it was passed down from all the fathers before him.

Given and his family leave their little island of palm trees to follow the Big Fish’s trail across the seas. They meet beekeepers and snake dancers, sleep on sandy beaches and play on ice rocks. Given watches and learns for he knows he too would one day have to search for his own Big Fish.

This is a story of a unique family legacy come full circle. A story of finding home wherever you may be. Inspired by the feature film documentary called Given, this is based on the true and wild journey of surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin as they take their family to fulfill a calling handed down through generations to find freedom in surrender.
