The novel is divided into three parts. In the first part, we are introduced to Santiago and his young apprentice, Manolin, who have gone 84 days without catching a fish. Manolin's parents have forced him to leave Santiago and fish with another boat, but he still cares for the old man and helps him with his gear and food. Santiago is confident that his luck will change and decides to go far out into the sea the next day.


In the second part, Santiago hooks a huge marlin that pulls his boat for two days and two nights. Santiago endures hunger, thirst, pain and exhaustion as he battles with the fish, admiring its strength and beauty. He also faces attacks from sharks that try to devour his catch. Santiago manages to kill the marlin and lash it to the side of his boat, but he loses most of it to the sharks on his way back to the shore.


In the third part, Santiago returns to his hut with the skeleton of the marlin. He collapses on his bed and falls into a deep sleep. Manolin finds him the next morning and cries over his wounds. He vows to fish with him again and fetches him some coffee and newspapers. The other fishermen gather around Santiago's boat and marvel at the size of the marlin. Santiago dreams of his youth and of lions on an African beach. e0e6b7cb5c
