Ondine

Ondine

The truth is not what you know. It's what you believe.
  • Let's see you pop a wheelie!

Based on an old Irish myth and in some ways an adult version of Disney's The Little Mermaid, Ondine tells the story of an alcoholic fisherman who catches a naked woman in his fishing net. He takes her home and takes care of her, and she is works her way to acceptance by the locals, and by the fisherman's sickly daughter. Somewhere along the way the myth of the selkie and her longing to return home morphs into a real romantic drama, but is the story of the selkies really myth... or is heartbreak lying ahead?
