They are lethal to men. Without men, they won’t survive.
Tv-series - 12x44 min - Fantasy | Romance
When Didi, a young, pretty, small town girl, makes love to her boyfriend for the first time, the boy dies. Eventually, Didi, meets two (remarkable) women, Kati and Nadia, who tell her she is no ordinary girl; like Kati and Nadia, she is a Nymph. A totally new way of life with new rules and boundaries, a life where she must leave her old family and friends behind.
The nymphs have escaped from the tyranny of the satyrs to live on their own among humans. One of them, Didi, could turn out to be the Legend. The one that many stories have been told about, the one who could lead the nymphs to freedom.
Once a month, a nymph has to have sex with a man. If she does not, she will grow old during the next night of the full moon – so old she will reach death’s door. However, nymphs, especially young ones, are lethal to men. Because of Didi, the three nymphs are soon in danger of revealing their ancient secret to humans. To make the situation even more challenging, the trio has the police and the satyrs’ best hunters after them. That Didi falls madly in love with a young medical student, Samuel, doesn’t make things any easier for them.
As we have learned from numerous tragedies from the past, nothing good will ever come of relationships between humans and divine beings…
