Musical fairy tale

Jacob lives with his father and mother by the sea in a hollow under an old tree. One day, he catches an extraordinary fish. It looks at him with little black eyes and begs: ‘Throw me back and let me live and I’ll grant your every wish!’

Jacob’s parents know what to ask for. A warm blanket for the cold nights. A real bed. A home. They get all they wish for but are still unhappy. Jacob keeps getting sent back to the sea with more wishes. But could it be that the fish looks weaker every time? And why is the sea constantly more agitated?
