Bait & Tackle
Directed by Lily Newton
While on a beach vacation that becomes overwhelmed by her male-dominated family, bright-eyed Kimmy seeks out Melanie, the mysterious woman dressed as a mermaid in the hotel parking lot. Drawn to and accepted by this mermaid mother-figure, Kimmy is sucked into Melanie’s fantastical facade. But when Kimmy begins to see that the world isn't all cute fish and mermaids, she must decide whether to continue turning a blind eye to the harsher realities of the world, or embrace her inner shark.
