As he enjoys his first shore leave exploring the boardwalks, tiki bars, and beach parties of a spooky seaside town, Johnny meets Mora, a seductive and mysterious young woman who works in the sideshow as a mermaid. Johnny immediately becomes smitten with Mora, but soon discovers that she may in fact be a real siren of the sea, and she may have lured her previous boyfriends to their watery graves…
