Kai lives in a fishing village. One day, the boy befriends Lu, a mermaid who loves to dance and sing. But the local townspeople feel that mermaids only bring bad news, complicating coexistence between the two young friends and the rest of the village. A precious fable crowning a triumphant year for Masaaki Yuasa.
