In a small country, surrounded by a dyke, dwell the “Water People”. They live partly submerged i water, for instead of keeping it out, the dyke keeps the water in. The Water People like it that way. Their King, however, hates water and tries to sell out. The character and situations in this animated tale are the products of the filmmaker’s imagination, but any resemblance to legendary characters or events is not entirely coincidental.
