A Drowning Man
Fateh is the drowning man of the title – metaphorically drowning in sea of worries, troubles and existential dread. As he paces the streets of Athens, it seems that his life is rapidly heading down the dumper. But then, on his peripatetic peregrinations, he gains a profound insight into his condition.
