FILM SYNOPSIS

Annika, a supermarket saleswoman, dreams of the perfect mermaid fin. It would bring glamour into her chaotic world where her father moves back in with her, her girlfriend dumps her children on her and her potential lover no longer leaves because he is homeless. There are also plans to make savings in the supermarket and the shamanically trained branch manager is looking for potential lay-offs. But none of that matters: Annika needs the fin and it costs 2.458 euro.
