This was interesting but sometimes hard to follow. Well, not exactly hard to follow more that it got progressively more difficult to understand as it went on, but I guess that's fiction for you.
Initially I thought it was a fictional story but with a believable story-line. Then it got to this conceptual shark thing where this shark comes out of the ground and tries to kill him. It reminded me of the big snake-shark thing in beetlejuice. Then towards the end, the final battle if you will, they set out some props in the shape of a boat and pretend they're at sea, and he has to summon water through dreaming or something. Then all of a sudden they're at sea, but is it all a dream? A hallucination? Again, maybe that's just fiction for you.
