The original fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.
A young mermaid is fascinated about the ships, towns, birds and people in the human world she hears from her older sisters. However, she is not of age to see the world above the ocean and sadly waits for her rite of passage. Her special day arrives and discovers a ship with a prince. The little mermaid is then willing to give up her life at sea to become human and win the prince’s heart.
