Whilst fishing off the coast of his local town, Syracuse (Colin Farrell) is shocked when amongst his haul he finds a young yet beautiful woman. Introducing herself as Ondine (Alicja Bachleda) she quickly takes a shine to Syracuse, but remains intensely wary of anybody else. Ondine quickly befriends Syracuse's precocious daughter Annie (Alison Barry), who comes to the conclusion that her newfound acquaintance is a mystical beast sent from the ocean to help her struggling father. Ondine obliges such assumptions by apparently providing Syracuse with an extra dosage of luck on his shipping expeditions, his catch becoming larger whenever her ethereal beauty is present. However despite Ondine's majesty, she may also be bringing trouble to the little Irish community, as a selection of shady figures start appearing in the town seeking a disappeared young woman fitting her description.
