Jeff is a chef with big dreams and an even bigger fish. He’s sure his prize salmon will help him win Fish Chef of the Year award – and a one-way ticket out of his dull seaside town. With the judge arriving the next morning he heads home early to get some rest. But on the way he’s lured into a local swimming pool by an insatiable mermaid. Now he has to make a choice – satisfy his libido in the lido or keep focused on the future.

Running Time: 7 minutes 6 seconds
