Teenagers Golden and Silver find themselves in the middle of the world of 1980s Warsaw dance parties, vibrant with music, glittering with neon lights and sequins. But these are no ordinary girls; they are mermaids, trying to understand what it means to be a woman in the world they live in. They join a band called Figs & Dates, becoming an instant sensation of the city’s nightlife. In the throes of love and budding passions, they briefly forget their true nature. But all it takes is one broken heart for the situation to spin out of control.
