By Land, By Sea is an original retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale of “The Little Mermaid”. Ariella, a moody teenager, desires to be in the sea more than ever. Her father, Octavian, has bigger and better plans for her and he does not approve of her being anywhere near the ocean. Ariella disobeys her father’s wishes and runs to the beach where she meets Gretchen, a sea witch. Gretchen makes a deal with Ariella and gives her what she desires. Under the sea, Ariella meets Derek, the prince of the ocean.
