May has loved jellyfish since she was a child. Now as an adult she’s made it a mission to free jellyfish held captive by aquariums.  She means to free as many jellyfish as she can by breaking open their tanks. Her compulsive need to destroy aquariums may seem destructive, but as May soon explains, there’s a history behind her actions.
