Beneath the ocean’s waves there is no death or pain or separation. Above, the modern world is beset with war, poverty and desire.
On her sixteenth birthday, a mermaid rises up to the surface, leaving her childhood behind for ever when she falls in love with a mortal prince. She knows that she can no longer live
at the bottom of the ocean –
but must she destroy herself in order to be loved ?
A bold reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of love, loss and longing, transported to a contemporary setting.
