This is the tale of a small fish forced to flee his homeland after unexpected tragedy strikes. His arduous journey to the sea becomes a crucible, forging invaluable life lessons along the way. But no experience proves more formative than his struggle to liberate a school of fish from the ruthless reign of a tyrannical, self-appointed religious leader. In this decisive battle that pits oppression against freedom, the fish and his companion come to grasp the true significance of liberty and its precious fragility.
As he continues toward the safety of the boundless ocean, our young hero carries deep convictions about the dignity of free will, individual choice, and the courage to defend them, timeless virtues purchased through sacrifice no matter one’s size or strength. With resonance across the political and the personal, The Mystery of Freedom renders universal truths through the eyes of the smallest among us.
