“What happened is all I see is blue, all I see is you. I am in love with the colour blue”

Have you ever fallen in love, the way they write about in poems and sing about in songs? Fallen in love so deeply that you would change who you are – including your physical form? Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid, Blue follows the journey of a woman who gives up her life and her identity. After finding out her love is unrequited, she finds herself trapped in a strange body, on an unknown land. A place where she’ll have to confront herself with the woman she has become.
