ONDINE is the story of a simple fisherman, Syracuse (Colin Farrell), who when out fishing one day hauls in a beautiful and mysterious woman entangled in his trawler's nets. The motionless woman appears to be dead, but recovers and comes to before Syracuse's eyes.
He can't believe what he's seeing but with the help of his ailing, yet irrepressible daughter, Annie (Alison Barry), he starts to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman, Ondine (Alicja Bachleda) might be a myth come true.
Ondine and Syracuse fall passionately in love, but just as we think the fairytale might go on forever, the real world intercedes. Then, after a terrible car crash and the return of a dark and violent figure from Ondine's past, hope eventually prevails and a new beginning is presented to Syracuse, Ondine and Annie.
