LADY IN THE WATER is a story originally conceived by writer/director/producer M Night Shyamalan (THE VILLAGE, SIGNS) for his children.
A modest building manager at the Cove apartment complex, Cleveland Heep (Paul Giamatti) rescues a mysterious young woman (Bryce Dallas Howard) from danger and discovers she is actually a narf, a character from a bedtime story who is trying to make the treacherous journey from our world back to hers.
Cleveland and his fellow tenants start to realize that they are also characters in this bedtime story. In addition Cleveland is smitten and falls deeper and deeper in love with the woman.
Cleveland works together with the tenants to protect his new fragile friend from the deadly creatures that reside in this fable and are determined to prevent her from returning home.
