Two investigators, Doug (USA) and Kai (New Zealand), search the bottom of the sea in order to determine the disappearance of American Airlines Flight 13 over the Pacific Ocean. What they uncover is a missing stewardess - Doug's wife, Marina - who has been brought back to "life" by Takaroa, the Polynesian God of the sea...much to the chagrin of his mermaid ex-lover, Mei-Lei. Through music, magic, and a memorable jellyfish, Doug and Marina try to find each other and escape home to the surface...or disappear with the wreck forever.
