Claudiu si crapii

Claudiu And the Fish

Goods stacked up to the ceiling, special offers as far as the eye can see, customer service on the surface and cold-blooded business underneath: Some might say a shopper's paradise made to measure. In the midst of all of this a kind-hearted youngster works behind the fish counter, all the while trying to find his place in life. It is then that the cough of a carp awakes the courage within him to undertake a change.

How should one react when peaceful means outlive their usefulness? Submit to fate or take the initiative? A delicately thought out line of action with a tongue-in-cheek undertone.
