Description

Inspired by Jewish folklore, this is the story of young Reuven and a giant talking fish. When the villagers realize the fish’s scales are real gold, each has good reason to ask for one. Devorah needs clothes for her children. Old Joseph needs money for a cane. The fish has plenty to share, but he grows weak from giving away too much, too fast. Can Reuven stand up to the village and save his friend?
