Frank swears that the woman he's having sex with in his dreams is a mermaid, but her appearance evades him. Obsessed with these nightly visions, he discusses his troubles over a series of beers at the corner bar. But as his obsession escalates, so does his paranoia; as Frank walks us through these nightly encounters, his dreams begin to take on a life their own. Searching for a meaning behind his haunting, Frank is faced with a series of grotesque truths and an ever-growing list of questions for which he fears to find the answers.

*Full disclosure: The actual budget for this film is $12,000; the funding we receive via Kickstarter will go towards the production of the mask (approximately $3,000), and additional fundraising efforts will be made to support the production.
