  • Mai 1915. Sur une île déserte de l'archipel des Scilly, un pêcheur et son fils découvrent une jeune fille blessée et hagarde, à moitié morte de faim et de soif. Elle ne parvient à prononcer qu'un seul mot : Lucy. D'où vient-elle ? Est-elle une sirène, ou plutôt, comme le laisse entendre la rumeur, une espionne au service des Allemands ?
    De l'autre côté de l'Atlantique, le Lusitania, l'un des plus rapides et splendides paquebots de son temps, quitte le port de New York. À son bord, la jeune Merry, accompagnée de sa mère, s'apprête à rejoindre son père blessé sur le front et hospitalisé en Angleterre...
