A warm family friendly video Mermaids [DVD] [1991
] based on a true story which gives viewers the opportunity to meet the real people behind this moving narrative of hope, joy and healing. The acting was well done, particularly by the child at the centre of the story, devastated by the untimely loss of her father that shattered the young family and lost them their home and lifestyle. A remarkable story of the amazing way a child's wish came true through the 'coincidence' of her heart's cry for help being found thousands of miles away by a family with the compassion to act. Just a 'coincidence' or evidence for the divine hand of a loving being responding to a broken-hearted child's cries?
