The Little Mermaid

The little mermaid visits the surface of her father's underwater kingdom for the first time. She sees a fishing boat and swims closer to it our of curiosity, but soon learns that she has made a mistake as she becomes tangled in the fishing net that she tries to swim through. The sea witch recognizes this opportunity and causes a storm that frees the little mermaid from the net, but also sends one of the fisherman overboard. The little mermaid saves his life and instantly grows attached to him, even though she does not reveal herself to him. The sea witch asks the little mermaid a favor in return for saving her life: she must convince the humans of the surface to spend more on bigger boats and bigger nets to catch more fish by the end of three days or she will perish like she was supposed to in the net. The little mermaid must fight for her life by enlisting the help of the fisherman that she saved, the only human she has ever come into contact with. However, her conscious tells her that saving her life may mean the death of far more creatures than just fish. She knows that dolphins, sharks, and other sea creatures get caught in fishing nets and die horrible deaths as well. What will the little mermaid choose to do?
