Song of the Sea is an enchanting film from the director of Academy Award nominated The Secret of Kells. The story is a magical adventure steeped in the wondrous worlds of Irish myth and inspired by the legend of the “selkies” — magical beings who live as seals in water and humans on land. Young Ben and his little sister Saoirse live with their widower father in a lighthouse by the sea. When the silent Saoirse — who at six years old has yet to utter a single word — discovers a shell flute that used to belong to their mother, the spellbinding music she creates unlocks a magical secret about her mother’s past.
