A TV Film directed by Vic Sarin 1999 - 95 minutes - Color - Stereo - NC
A fading New England fishing town is the setting of this gentle fable in which teen swimmer Amanda, troubled by her father's absence, skips school with some mild vandalism in mind but winds up saving a man who has jumped into the river. The man was actually just out for a swim, as he and his wife are sea people -- the politically correct term for mermaids. Amanda gets drawn into the elderly couple's quest for colder water, enlisting the help of a schoolmate with a fishing boat and a little sea people history of his own.
