But the evil sea-witch Octavia Cephalopod plans to steal Neptune’s trident and overthrow him, and forces two hapless taxi-drivers to assist her.

Including fishmonger Sybil Sushi and her son Winkle. Valiant and Arial meet and fall in love, but Octavia wants Valiant for herself and hatches a plan that sees Arial give her voice away to her.
