Shy Dylan arrives at a summer arts camp and immediately connects with flamboyant Coral. They bond over the aquatic theme of the camp and a drive to create comic books. The two girls plan a comic book about lifeguards who are transformed into mermaids and fight for eco-justice in the sea. At first Dylan wishes she could be more outgoing, like Coral. But Coral's tendency to appear loud and foolish pushes Dylan back behind the scenes, where she has always been comfortable.
