Product Overview

There's something strange going on in a small northeastern coastal town and young Amanda (Tegan Moss, Little Women) is determined to find out what it is. Amanda is a dreamer - she dreams of swimming the English Channel and she dreams of mermaids. One day, she witnesses an elderly man jump off an inlet bridge into freezing water. Horrified, she dives in to rescue him, but when she brings him to the surface, he explains he was just going for a swim! Join Amanda as she slowly learns that John (Hume Cronyn, The Pelican Brief) and his wife Bridget (Joan Gregson, The Scarlet Letter) are not just an old married couple - they seem to have an enchanted and mysterious relationship with the sea. This magical, mythical family adventure will have you believing in the impossible, and wishing to join the sea people…

Editors Note
Note Amanda, a lonely young girl who lives in a small Nova Scotian town, sees an old man (Cronyn) jump off a bridge into some very cold water. Jumping in after him, Amanda is startled to find that he jumped on purpose and swims very well. He introduces himself as John, and invites Amanda to his house to dry off. There Amanda discovers something very different about John and his wife, namely that they sleep in saltwater tanks, eat algae, and drink seaweed tea. She begins an investigation into the mermaid myth that is popular in the area, and as she becomes friendlier with the elderly couple, they share their relationship to sea with her. A sweet, tender fable that appeals to all ages, SEA PEOPLE is an ideal family film.
