Rate this:

A young man, swimming off the shore of a Caribbean island, is saved from drowning by a mysterious boy who appears from the depths. His body is scarred, yet his face is beautiful, and he leaps and swims as joyously as the dolphins. When the young man tells this to a passing stranger, he in turn is told a story of the days of slave trading.

When one of his ancestors came to these islands aboard a slave ship, a pregnant woman was thrown off because it was thought she wouldn't survive the journey. It is said that she and her son live in the ocean to this day, and he is called Freedom Child of the Sea . Only when there is harmony among all people will he and his mother be able to live on land as others do. Reassuring the young man that there is hope for all humanity, the stranger goes on his way.
