Gymnastics school teacher Caroline Trewella (Glynis Johns) inherits a house on the Cornwall coast. In the basement/smuggler's cave, she discovers mermaid Miranda (Glynis Johns). The young women share a common ancestor and are remarkably alike in looks. While Caroline is away on a bicycling tour, Miranda has fun taking her place on land. With the help of her friend Nurse Carey (Dame Margaret Rutherford), Miranda feigns an injury that keeps her wheelchair-bound... or more often needing to be carried by a man. And the ever flirtatious Miranda certainly knows how to attract all of the men of the village.

Is he married?
No - I reckon he's too wise.
I don't know what you mean by that.
Well he'd rather make several ladies happy than one miserable.
