The mermaid Rusalka is the little daughter of the Spirit of the waters, who lives in the lake with other aquatic beings. She confesses to her father the love she feels for a human who usually goes swimming. His frightened father tells him of the evil of humans and warns him that by loving him he will become mortal and they will not be able to see each other. Rusalka persists and asks the witch Ježibaba to help her become human, to conquer that man. She grants the nymph’s wish, but not before letting her know that the cost of her decision will be very high.
