There are 3.7 trillion fish in the ocean. They're looking for just one.*

In the warm tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, a clown fish named Marlin (Albert Brooks) lives safe and secluded in a quiet cul-de-sac with his only son, Nemo (Alexander Gould). Fearful of the ocean and its unpredictable risks, he struggles to protect his son. Nemo, like all young fish, is eager to explore the mysterious reef. When Nemo is unexpectedly taken far from home and thrust into a dentist's office fish tank in Sydney, Marlin finds himself the unlikely hero on an epic journey to rescue his son.

In Marlin's quest he is joined by a good Samaritan named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), a Regal Blue Tang fish with the worst short term memory and biggest heart in the entire ocean. As the two fish continue on their journey, encountering numerous dangers, Dory's optimism continually forces Marlin to find the courage to take risks and overcome his fears. In doing so, Marlin gains the ability to trust and believe, like Dory, that things will work out in the end. Confronting sea birds, sewer systems and even man himself, father and son's fateful separation ends in triumph. The once fearful Marlin becomes a true hero in the eyes of his son, and the whole ocean.

3.7 trillion fish

Actually, no-one can ever know exactly how many fish there are in the ocean. According to some sources, the real number is probably closer to between 1 and 4 quadrillion! We just wanted to emphasise the boatload of fish that live in the world's oceans and one fish's incredible quest to find his lost son.
