Daughter Of The Waves|
The year is 1941. The war in Europe rages on. The Location: A windswept beach in neutral Ireland where a traveling theater troupe has smuggled in Jewish refugees from war torn Europe. As the aerialists, acrobats, contortionists, and singers prepare to mount a new production, the circus' shining star has fallen silent, the frequently drunk clown has disappeared into the night, insomniac ballerinas scan the waves for hidden German U-boats, and a shadowy presence keeps turning on the wireless radio. DAUGHTER OF THE WAVES tells the true untold story of Jewish refugees learning to survive in a new world. DAUGHTER OF THE WAVES examines the struggle of 'otherness' through the tale of the Selkie myth - a man who transforms for the love a girl and pays with his life.
