'When a fisherman and his granddaughter head out on a fishing trip, their journey becomes a life and death adventure that neither of them had anticipated. Marlin is inspired by classic seafaring literature, and is set in the game fishing regions off Northern Queensland. Played in a sea of foam, Marlin explores the special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, and asks what it really means to win.' (Production summary)
