"A short puppet play.

Albert, and his sister Genevieve, live on an island that clings to tradition. The annual Solstice each year celebrates the coming of age of young men in the village into fishermen. Albert makes for a poor fisherman, for which he wishes he didn't have to be, nevermind feeling happy to assume the role of the Watcher - the one who must guard the village against the return of the Big Wave."
