Mermaids is a sensory fairytale chronicling medical professional MOTHER (45)’s quest to save her terminally ill daughter AGNES (12). Agnes has cancerous tissue spreading in her lungs, and the doctors’ advice to Mother is clear: enjoy the time you have left and let go.
But Mother cannot. She brings Agnes to her own birthplace, a natural reserve off the Danish coast, in order to carry out her secret treatment, transferring her own tissue and life force to Agnes. Aided by an elderly local, RAGNHILD, Mother’s treatments begin to take an effect, but they have an unexpected result on Agnes, mutating her body into something out of a fairytale.
