An intriguing tale of sin and redemption, Fishbowl, takes place in, Bishop, a small town filled with secrets, where the Simon sisters (Emily Peachey, Caroline Coleman, Belle Shickle) are trying to cope with the absence of their mother (Judith Hoag, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Nashville”) and maintain a normal life, while enduring Catholic school and typical teen struggles under the watchful eye of their demanding teacher, Mr. Barnes (Delaney Williams, “The Wire”). Silently repressing them is their damaged father (Rick Kain, “Jack Ryan”) who, quite adrift himself, is growing increasingly obsessed with The Rapture that he believes is imminent. For the girls, home is anything but a refuge. In the midst of rebellious acts, punishments, and religious imposition, the sisters must cling to one another to survive. On the night that Rick believes to be The Rapture, he will attempt to take his daughters to “the other side”, but as the bell tolls, true colors shine through and the mystery of their mother’s disappearance is revealed in a shattering climax.
