Commenting upon racism and imperialism by way of a fairy tale, »Eye & Mermaid« is centred on the young daughter of a fisherman who witnesses the slaughter of mermaids and the theft of their precious black pearls. This becomes a painful life experience, which she finally frees herself from after the death of her father. »Eye & Mermaid« brutally pushes the meaning of the term magical realism.
