Through the eyes of an only child, the five minute daily catches, in between two jobs his father held, were precious moments and more than a physical activity. "A Catch" becomes a metaphor for communication between father and son/parent and child as the dynamics of the catch change though the years, sadly end and reborn as the son becomes a father himself. A catch is depicted as a process, a rite of passage and a gift to pass along.
Anyone who shared a regular experience with their parents will appreciate the importance of this face to face activity in an era where parents and children often don't see "eye to eye" and parents delegate the "coaching" of their children to other adults.
