The daughter of a sea King, Ariel is a mermaid who’s been blessed with everything her heart could desire in the water-filled world she lives in. Ariel, however, longs for everything she doesn’t have–a life on land, legs to walk on, and love. When she rescues a sailor from drowning, Ariel and the young man quickly fall in love. Desperate to be with Prince Eric, Ariel strikes a desperate bargain with Ursula, an underwater witch. Ariel sacrifices her exquisite voice in exchange for legs and the chance to live on land with Eric.
The Little Mermaid played at the 1997 Heartland Film Festival in the Special Screening Sidebar.
