The Boy and the Mermaid, 10th April, 14:00
On the furthest edge of a wind-battered rock there sits a small fishing town. The town lives by the rhythms of the sea; its tides and its weather. As regular as the lapping of the waves on the shore. Sometimes it feels like the town is on the edge of the world. That’s mainly because it is. Dylan lives with his grandma, forbidden from venturing beyond the shore. But the terrifying tales told of horrors in the deep only whet his appetite - he stares at the ocean and dreams. Can one unlikely friendship save the Town On The Sea from catastrophe?
