About this submission

12-year old Dizzy finds himself being called into the ocean where his father has disappeared. In the car, he releases his anger and frustration on his uncle, Charlie. Charlie gives Dizzy an awkward pep-talk, and Dizzy declares his mission to find his dad. The next day, Dizzy hallucinates seeing a submarine in the distance, and his dad waving at him. Dizzy's foot gets caught in kelp, but he is saved by a pair of unknown hands. Charlie appears in the distance, and helps Dizzy swim to shore. They watch the sunset as a whale’s tail appears, symbolizing Dizzy's new acceptance.
