But we soon learn that Saoirse, like her mother before her, is a selkie mythological creatures that live as seals in the sea but shed their skins to live as humans on land. Just as Saoirse undertakes her first visit to her otherworldly life beneath the waves, their grandmother arrives to take the children to live with her in the city, far away from the sea. Without her magical sealskin, Saoirse soon falls gravely ill. Can Ben and Saoirse find their way home before its too late? Directed by Tomm Moore. Duration: 1h33m. Rated PG.
