In this bold, genre-defying horror-musical mashup, a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters are drawn ashore in an alternate '80s Poland to explore the wonders and temptations of life on land. Their siren songs and otherworldly aura make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers. In a visceral twist on Hans Christian Andersen's original Little Mermaid tale, one sister falls for a human, and as the bonds of sisterhood are tested, the lines between love and survival get blurred.

FILM ARTICLE: “Their siren song to a family on shore isn’t too reassuring – “Help us come ashore, no need to fear, we won’t eat you” – but they end up being taken in.” – Edmonton Journal
