Everyone believes that he is fated with ill-luck since he does not return with a catch for many days. The parents of his trusted friend and understudy named Manolin propel him to try his prospects on boats that are doing better. Manolin also visits Santiago every night after work and looks after his needs. He helps Santiago haul back the fishing kit to his house and ensures that he has food on time. Manolin talks about all the recent happenings in American Baseball, especially regarding Santiago's idol, Joe DiMaggio. Santiago firmly believes that he will return with a good catch, and therefore, decides to venture further ahead in the sea.Hide synopsis
