After the disappearance of her mother when she was a baby, 4-year old Saoirse, who lives on a small island with her father and older brother Ben, discovers a magical coat that turns her into a seal-like creature called a Selkie. Having spent the night swimming with the seals, Saoirse is found washed up on the shore by her Granny who decides she and Ben would be safer living in the city. One Halloween night, longing to return home, Saoirse awakens some Faerie creatures, leading the two children on a weird and wonderful journey back home. Beautifully drawn with a bewitching soundtrack, this is an enchanting feast for the eyes and a heart-felt celebration of traditional Gaelic storytelling and folktales.

    I enjoyed watching this movie because at the beginning the brother and the sister were fighting with each other and at the end the brother were showing so much love for his sister by trying to save her life.

    I really liked this movie, especially when the little girl swam under the sea. My favourite scene was when the mum appeared at the end.
