Summary

A girl discovers that a rock out at sea is actually a living creature and home to many animals, and must save it from being destroyed by the fishing community who think that it is dangerous.

Erin is fascinated by the legend of Black Rock. A huge, dark and spiky mass that is said to destroy any boats that come near it! But are they tales really true? One day Erin sneaks on board her mother's fishing boat to find out.

A surreal modern folk-tale about an adventurous little girl protecting an innocent living creature against those who wish to harm it.
