Although based on a true story, this film takes several liberties from the actual event. The most notable is the fact that, in real life, the image on the balloon was of none other than Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid (1989). See more »
The credits are run over video of the real-life family as they meet the cast. See more »
What are the odds of a "Mermaid" helium balloon traveling from Yuba City, Ca.(on Nov 8th,1993) and landing 4 Days later,(on Nov. 12) in MERMAID, Prince Edward Island, Canada.(Approx. 4000 miles). This is a great movie. It is based on a true story. This movie helps not only children cope with losses, but older people as well. Hope everyone will enjoy it!!! Rhonda
