Helena and her teenage son, Janek, participate in the expedition in search of the mermaid music. Their lonely boat anchors by the wild shore. Helena clumsily tries to combine work with the role of mother. Her over-zealous care repels the maturing Janek, who, despite the warnings, is more and more fascinated by the water. When at dawn the boy gets out of his mother’s control, hairless, naked beings emerge from the water, hypnotizing him with music and sensuality.
