Editors Note
Note A touching Showtime family drama, MERMAID stars Jodelle Ferland as Desi, a young girl who has recently lost her father. Struggling with his death, Desi writes him a letter and attaches it to a balloon, hoping that the letter will reach him in heaven. It doesn't, but the balloon does land in a town named Mermaid where a man and his family find it and decide to answer the letter. Featuring an enchanting performance from the young Ms. Ferland and an equally moving turn by Ms. Burstyn, MERMAID is an excellent film about coping with loss and the need for small miracles.
