Far beneath the crashing ocean tide lies a mystical kingdom, hidden from the world above. It’s a magical place, full of wonder and enchantment, where mythological creatures dwell, and mermaids roam freely.
Over the centuries, there have been countless renditions and retellings of the class fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, the tale of a young mermaid princess who strikes a bargain with a conniving sea hag in exchange for the opportunity to be with her one true love.
This story, on the other hand, takes a darker twist, diving into the previously unknown origins of the mysterious sorceress, once Sequana, a headstrong, knowledge-seeking mermaid and devoted daughter of a powerful sea king. Wounded by a heartbreaking betrayal, Sequana finds herself struggling between good and evil, and is faced with a choice that could jeopardize herself and everyone she loves.
