As I indicated in the summary, this is a mild fantasy that is not too far-fetched. It is about "sea people"; people who look perfectly "normal", but who are more at home in the sea than on land.
One of the principal characters is a normal person, a teen-age girl, who happens to meet up with two, a husband and wife, of these sea people while they are on land. She learns that they call themselves sea people. She befriends them and tries to learn all that she can about sea people.
The husband is elderly and soon feels that his time on earth is almost finished. But he can live forever is he returns to the sea; permanently. That is what he (and other sea people) is going to do. When he so advises the teen-age girl, that makes for a very emotional farewell scene.
Young Tegan Moss, someone I had never heard of, gives a very good performance as the teen-age girl. She is especially effective in the above-mentioned farewell scene. And Hume Cronyn, the sea person husband befriended by Tegan, gives his usual outstanding performance.
I found this to be a very well done and enjoyable movie.
