Émile, a young biochemist, falls head over heels in love with a half-woman/half-fish being doing underwater tricks in the community pool. Two days later, they have a baby. What Émile is sure of is that he has obviously met a supernatural being, and that his love for her will lead him down a perilous path to the edge of the sea, to a dimension where life and death live side by side, and where faith is required for survival. A show where words, bodies, and music come and go, creating waves that crash against the story and whose impact, over time, creates beautiful layers.
