Big Fish centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman whose larger-than-life stories of epic adventures delight everyone around him, except his pragmatic son Will. Just as Edward’s health begins to decline, Will learns that he is about to become a father, and sets out to discover his family’s real story by seeking the truth behind his father’s tall tales.
