"What was the last existential crisis you had?"

"I hadn't thought about it

but I guess I don't believe in love anymore"

A multi-media theatrical adventure following Tack, a late bloomer, on a lyrical adventure to the middle of the ocean. With the Man in the Moon as her guide, Tack goes on an emotional journey laden with sexual frustration, growing pains, and disenchantment in her quest to get her childhood friends back.
 
While at sea, Tack becomes a voyeur to the lives and romances of the Sirens and Fish Heads of the ocean, but when the opportunity to save her friends is lost, Tack must decide whether she can accept her role in this new world or continue to live in fantasy.
