H2O just add water
H2O - Just add water
Emma, Cleo and Rikki are sixteen-year-old girls growing up on the sun-drenched beaches of the Gold Coast. Emma’s confident and athletic, Cleo is slightly insecure and awkward. Rikki is ‘different’ - the new girl - aloof and smart. For our heroines, life revolves around clothes, the beach, and boys – with school as a minor distraction.
Because of Rikki, the girls find themselves accidentally stranded at sea one day, floating towards mysterious Mako Island. The three urban girls find themselves exploring the eerie jungle covered island before becoming trapped in an ancient cavern under a volcano.
Discovering an underwater channel, they decide to swim to safety. As they enter the pool, the light from a full moon illuminates the water, creating a mysterious glow.
Emma, Cleo and Rikki get off the island as fast as they can and back to ‘normal’ life. One by one however the girls find life is never going to be normal again.
It’s Emma who discovers it first when she goes for a morning training swim alone – contact with water makes her grow a fish tail! The others find exactly the same thing; Cleo – in the bath, Rikki – hit by a garden sprinkler! It seems if water touches them they have seconds to dry off before long, elegant tails appear! They’re mermaids!
But the surprises aren’t over. As the girls experiment they find they’ve got extraordinary, magical powers over H2O. Emma can freeze water. Cleo can turn a drop into a bucketful and mould it into any shape. And Rikki can boil water with a gesture.
Everyday situations have now turned tricky. The morning shower – the swimming sports – rainstorms, all create profound problems. However together with their loyal friend Lewis, the girls resolve to resume their normal teenage lives. But it’s hard to be normal when you’re a part-time mermaid!
The girls enter a wonderful, underwater world, but the nature of their powers draws them into wild adventures. And when local bad boy, Zane Bennett is rescued from a sinking boat by Emma, he turns out to be the biggest threat of all. Having seen ‘something’ under the water, Zane embarks on a hunt for the mysterious creature lurking out at sea.
