Brief synopsis

Oscar and the suffering Jesus, Mary and her passionate lover, Paul and the beautiful Molina. Is their love true? Everything is as it seems, at the same time entirely different. Was the blind fish not blind at all? Or was it all just a dream?

"the blind fish" is a surreal film making visible what is often concealed, uniting the contrary, surprising with ever new twists.
