The film does a skilled job of conjuring its atmosphere with both a peppy background score and stylistic decisions. The story itself is complete with financial burdens, familial conflict, and above all, a random, absurd development that completely alters the fate of the protagonist.

A series of unlikely elements come to overlap one afternoon. The disgruntled protagonist, after immense emotional and familial strife, has turned up at his regular fishing haunt which disappoints him every day. However, today he finds something strange. Unfortunately, this discovery is also coupled with two uninvited onlookers, and thus, follows a complete unraveling of events. In the process, the film offers an entertaining and engrossing end result, maintaining its tone and approach throughout.
