A group of explorers discover a seemingly uninhabited island that legends say holds the Fountain of Youth. What at first looks like a tranquil paradise is actual filled with danger at every turn. Eventually, the explorers find the Fountain of Youth, but discover a mysterious and elegant mermaid-like creature swimming around it. The explorers send one of their own to befriend the creature, intending to trap it and take the Fountain for themselves. Once trapped, it is revealed that there is a large group of these creatures, already prepared to fight off the explorers. A battle ensues, and one of the explorers is kidnapped by the creatures. The other explores narrowly escape and leave the island, but the one kidnapped is kept and transformed into one of them.
