An examination of an ancient myth’s powerful allure and a journey into the fairy tales and universal legends about women of the water, as seen through the eyes of five women who are part of a growing “mermaiding” subculture today. Following the stories of these modern-day sirens, viewers voyage between mermaid theme parks, conventions, tail-making studios, and deep into the ocean, where escaping reality and transforming into the empowered icon of the mermaid is possible.

Five members of a growing subculture reveal the transformative power of being a mermaid.
