|Something so deep from nature that it seems unnatural.|
|Peter, suffering from amnesia, is discovered in Cork, Ireland by a gang of small time thieves. Peter is driven to find out who he is and where he came from. Ricky, the gang's leader, has presented him with a box that could lead to his true past. But Peter has begun to question whether he should forget the box and simply start life over with his new love, Caitlin...|
As Peter sits in Wandering Rocks, pondering the secrets of the box, he asks Caitlin out on a date. They walk along the Cork beach together. Peter unsuccessfully tries to bring forth lightning as Caitlin tells him the Irish tale of Cúchulainn. She tells Peter how Cúchulainn found and bound a mermaid, but let her go when she promised to give him great strength in battle if he would but look upon her name written in his shield. Peter--inspired by the story, and believing that the mermaid either gave Cúchulainn her power or showed the young man the power he already possessed--attempts to call forth lightning once again. This time he says Caitlin's name, and is successful. Peter tells her he can hear her thoughts. She knows, and they return home.
