Ben lives on a remote island with his lighthouse-keeper dad and his sister Saoirse. A visit to the beach reveals that Saoirse is a selkie, a being who can take the form of a person and a seal. This leads the children to uncover a series of secrets, including the truth about their mother’s disappearance many years earlier. Song of the Sea, a beautifully made 2D animated tale steeped in Irish folklore and magic, is truly enchanting.
