ONDINE is the story of Syracuse, a simple fisherman who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his trawler nets.

However, with the help of his irrepressible daughter, Annie, he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman (Ondine) might be a myth come true. Ondine and Syracuse fall passionately in love, but just as we think the fairytale might go on forever, the real world intercedes

"On the platform stage, bare but for a pair of immense gates, stalks the inevitable tiger of war. Hector returns from battle as a peacemaker and convinces Ulysses and the populace of the insanity of war. Together they agree that the Trojan War shall not take place. But the poets need a war for their elegies and dirges; the king, because it is custom; the lawyer, because of his honor; and others, for various mean reasons. And so, in spite of all logic, the war erupts."--Publisher's description
