Synopsis: 7year-old Stratis is excited to get a new pet fish for his birthday. His father, a rough conservative guy, takes him to the pet store but ends up disappointed when Stratis chooses a chubby flamboyant goldfish instead of the more “boyish” option of a gladiator fish. During their return home, the boy declares that his new goldfish is gay. His father can not tolerate any of this no more.
