Catch of the Day

Australia, 1990 (MIFF 1991, Animation)

Director: Sarah Watt

A dashing surfer rides up on his white steed and declares "I've come - you'll never have to chop onions again..." Jane wakes from her dream... or was it a nightmare?!

Working at the fish market, Jane endures the sexual innuendo and double entendres from male customers and fellow workers alike. When matters come to a head, Jane cleverly takes the situation into her own hands. She offers a unique solution to unsolicited sexual advances... and it's not onions that she's chopping. (S.S)
