Like The Red Turtle's shipwrecked protagonist, you have to simply stop fighting the current and go with the flow.

A fable so simple, so pure, it feels as if it has existed for hundreds of years, like a brilliant shard of sea glass rendered smooth and elegant through generations of retelling.

This is a quiet little masterpiece of images, each one rich with meaning, that collectively speak to a universal process.
