Fear is pretending that the couch is your entire world and the carpet is swimming in sharks, barracudas, giant eels and lost tennis shoes. Raft employs drowning as metaphor and historical fact. A study of the cemeteries of Newfoundland will overwhelm you with deaths due to drowning from boats being lost, people falling through the ice, or simply being swept out by the tide. A tale of unrequited love, the ocean is the traditional lover and destroyer of the Newfoundland people. Raft is also about the loss of ‘authentic’ cultural identity.
