The spiralling of four women’s dreams.
Enter the spiralling world of The Mermaid’s Table where remnants of Margaret Atwood and Becket collide. A woman is abandoned when her daughter vacates a besieged city, and her radio becomes her portal to a secret world. A group of dissidents debate the best use of a table. A mother searches for her missing daughter. A teenager dyes her hair mermaid-blue in a town where the expression of alternative identities is forbidden.
