Synopsis:
A surface man finds himself in an underwater world where their doctors have converted his body to survive under water. The king's daughter is taken with him and so wishes to marry him, but he only wants her dowry treasure chest and steals it. He passes out on the surface since he can no longer breathe air, and is captured and placed in prison. The king tells him he will serve a two year sentence for his theft and then the doctors will reverse their work and deposit him on the surface. The dowry consisted of a chest of sea shells, which they use for currency, but would be worthless on the surface.
