But you’re no loser.
You are sunshine.
So get well motherf**cker!

But also.
To exist, simply to float.
Now wouldn’t that be the dream...
Follow Sheryl with an ‘S’ on her quest to become as resilient and as versatile as Seaweed. Enter a world of moody projections, quirky presentations, satirical ads and a lot of the 'weed' from the sea. In a society where we are constantly pushed to be more productive, skilful and self-sufficient, what does it mean to 'just be?'. Can we grow from a place of love and trust instead of shame and comparison?
