In celebration of his birthday, a young boy, Stratis, is excited to get a new pet fish. His father, a staunch, rough around the edges conservative takes him to the pet store but ends up disappointed in his son’s choice. With all the gladiator fish he could choose from, the young boy selected a chubby goldfish. During their return home, the boy declares that his goldfish is gay but the father just won’t have it.
