Merin lives on the shores of Montauk, one of the most pure and beautiful beaches in the world. She loves to run down the sand at sunrise and collect the shells left by the low tide. The people who have seen Merin think that she is very strange. She speaks with an accent that does not come from any known country, and nobody knows where she lives. That`s because she is actually from the lost continent of Atlantis. Every night, she becomes a mermaid and swims back home to her shimmering underwater city.
