Bright and early one morining—even before the roosters crow—Colly shakes awake his big brother, Derrick. They have an important mission: to catch enough fish for their grandmother to cook for dinner. The brothers set off before dawn, but when they reach their secret fishing spot, things don't go quite as smoothly as they planned. Can Derrick and Colly still find a way to catch more fish than they can eat in a day?
