In an attempt to be free from her destiny, she turns to her grandmother, who transforms her into a human.
Ariel soon meets Cassie and Carson who then get caught up in a quest to end all siren life, but at what cost? Ariel must make a decision that will change the world forever, even if she won't be there to see it.
