Synopsis

It is 1850 and Tom, a young apprentice to a chimney sweep, is falsely accused of theft at a grand house in the country. As he tries to escape, he falls into a nearby river and is assumed to have drowned. But for Tom, a wonderful adventure is only just beginning, as he befriends the various creatures that live beneath the water. A winning combination of live action and animation, adapted from the children's book by Charles Kingsley.
