Kevin once had a dream that a wild storm would carry him away to live a heroic life sailing the seven seas. That was when he was a kid. Now he is an adult who works in the local sardine factory, and all of his dreams are locked away in a suitcase under his bed.
One day the suitcase bursts open and Kevin decides to leave his old life behind and launch into the unknown. He begins to build a boat in his backyard, but his family and friends think he is ridiculous. To them he is a sardine can man and that’s that.
But one night the wild storm does come, carrying Kevin and his boat out into the ocean never to be seen again.
