About this show

In this illuminating adaptation of Hemingway's classic novella, a young boy recounts the tale of an old Cuban fisherman's 85-day struggle to land the greatest catch of his life. Armed with little more than a few coils of fishing line, the old man comes to respect and love his adversary even as he confronts his own mortality in this sublime tale of man against the elements, of courage and faith, and of the enduring human spirit.
