Ben is the smart-aleck ten-year-old son of a lighthouse keeper on an island off the Irish coast. His mother died giving birth to his kid sister, Saoirse, who’s now six, but has never spoken a word. She has, however, inherited a special gift from her mother: she’s a "selkie," a seal-child who becomes human when on land and needs a special coat to turn back into a seal in the water. Things start to go haywire when the kids’ bossy grandmother whisks them away to Dublin. Fortunately for the siblings their mother gave them a special shell with the power to guide them home. Along the way Ben and Saoirse discover that many of the creatures from their mother’s tales actually exist. Working with wondrous watercolor backgrounds and 2D animation, Song of the Sea uses Irish folklore and legends to transform a familiar story about a child venturing out into a mysterious, enchanted world.
