AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What would you sacrifice to survive?

'Three fish swim peacefully in an aquarium. The coral is bright but life is dull. When a fourth fish is introduced into the tank, their status quo is confronted and life begins to take a turn for the worse.

'The temperature rises, food is scarce, and a fight for survival begins. Primitive instincts are brought to the fore as the world they know collapses around them.

'TANK is a cautionary tale; a brutal reflection of our absurdly volatile relationship with the environment and each other. Adapt or die, it’s a fish-eat-fish world out there and one of them has to go.' (Production summary)
