"Moments before drowning, she became the sea."

The  story of two women who find strength in each other despite their  personal struggles, MERMAIDS' LAMENT follows two women: Oee (Dayva  Summer Escobar) a traumatized woman who has lost her voice and may or  may not be a mermaid. Her therapist, Dr. Nell Jamison (Justina Mattos)  battles with anxiety herself, attempts to help Oee overcome her  delusions and connect with reality. As they bond over their experiences,  they learn to be resilient like the ocean and embrace the power of  imagination to navigate the chaos of the world.

GB  Hajim has been supporting the Hawaiian Renaissance through his  multimedia work for over 25 years. He has produced over 150 Hawaiian  language dramas, animations, documentaries, podcasts, and educational  programs. MERMAIDS' LAMENT is GB's second feature film, following the  self-produced 2D animated sci-fi lesbian musical, "Strange Frame"  (2013), which featured an all-star cast including Claudia Black, Cree  Summer, Tim Curry, George Takei, Academy Award winner Gary Rizzo for  sound, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd for music.

GB  is excited to bring his passion for storytelling and his love for the  ocean to MERMAIDS' LAMENT. He splits his time between working with the  Hawaiian community, writing screenplays, freediving, and farming.

See  the heartfelt and moving story that explores the power of imagination  and the strength that comes from human connection, MERMAID’S LAMENT.
