Jack smells like a fish. One night, on a visit to his father at the Eddystone Lighthouse, Jack meets his mother. She's a mermaid. She sends Jack on a quest to find his brothers, a porpoise and a porgie fish. Along the way, he falls in love, battles carnival hucksters, and is scolded by a porpoise... and that's before he meets the other mermaids.
