A big ship was once the only way to sail out to sea for a small fishing village. Through fishing, the village flourished, bustling into a big town. However, as time passed and the town ventured into other businesses, the big ship was left in the harbor to rust. However, when a storm hits, the big ship offered shelter for the villagers and saved their lives. In light of this, the villagers decided to give the ship a makeover. From once being indispensable to fading from memory, and ultimately discovering a renewed purpose, the ship has gone through a transformative odyssey, only to rekindle its resilience and embrace a newfound sense of purpose.
