    • Jimmy, your average mid-twenties bachelor stumbles upon a prize winning Betta Fish one day in a pet store. His brother Simon convinces him to try his luck in the underground fish fighting rings. Together the two embark on an adventure as their pet-store fish brings them fame and fortune in the ring. Yet their success in this underground world also brings the attention of a local mob boss whose prize winning fish went missing when The Boss comes after Jimmy. The story is told from Jimmy's perspective as he recounts the events of the previous weeks in order to delay the inevitable electro-shock testicle zapping that The Boss has in store for him.
