When Tom, a young chimney sweep, falls into a river and drowns, he is transformed from a 12-year-old boy who has known nothing but brutality and poverty into a "water-baby." In an underwater world surrounded by fairies, insects, and water nymphs, he soon discovers a new life of adventure and excitement.
