Generation after generation, the women of Jeju Island have survived by becoming Haenyos (women sea divers). Director Liz Chae spent months living with the chief of one of the last remaining Haenyo tribes. For 2,000 years, the Haenyos of Jeju have fought men, governments, and armies to protect their right to make a living from the sea. Now they want the tradition to stop. These are The Last Mermaids.
