The heroine story is not one to miss as it paints an alternative siren story of women luring men to their deaths in a war setting.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In director Karen Cinorre’s bold new action fantasy film Mayday, Ana (Grace Van Patten) finds herself transported to a dreamlike and dangerous coastline. Once there, she joins a female army engaged in a never-ending war where the women lure men to their deaths with radio signals, like 20th-century sirens. Though Ana finds strength in this exhilarating world, she comes to realize she is not the killer they want her to be.
The film also stars Mia Goth, Theodore Pellerin, and Juliette Lewis.
