The story begins like the Disney version. King Neptune gives a birthday party for his daughter mermaid Lieze who has turned eighteen. But when a storm strikes, the mermaid saves the prince when his ship sinks. She brings him to the coast and falls in love with him. Her father forbids her to have contact with humans so she returns to the water. But then she meets the sea witch Anne-Moon (a word joke of the Dutch word for anemone) and her daughter Sanne-moon. Sanne-Moon is ugly and mean and can't find a husband. So, she trades Lieze's voice for legs. And further, we know the tale. This version of the story is based on the story by Hans Christina Andersen, but at the end, she doesn't die.
