The salmon is unexpectedly launched past everything he has ever known and loved, witnessing a world he never experienced before, possibly seeing the meaning of life itself, and inevitably deposited to his new home. Through the experience of being abruptly transported away from his home and sent traveling through different worlds, his perspective is permanently changed for the better.
