In an alternate reality, merpeople have been forced to leave the polluted oceans, and live along-side humans on mainland Britain. After ten years in the UK, an elderly couple of merfolk refugees discuss the society they now live in, and how they have adapted to their new life.

This clever and tender animation provides an excellent way to explore the concept of refuge and the experience many people have when leaving their homes and arriving in a new city.
