Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Ring of Bright Water

Graham (Travers) is a London office worker deadly tired of the drudgery. One day, when in a pub with a friend, he wins a fish in a drawing. On the way home, he drops it ... right in front of a pet store window where an otter is being confined. Graham starts to pass by the window to see if his assumption is correct -- that the creature is keenly interested in him.

One day as he is continuing to test this theory, he hears two men plotting to purchase the otter and train him into submission for an animal act. Graham buys the otter he now calls Midge and takes him home to his flat.

Midge isn't meant for apartment living and the landlady isn't keen on the new tenant. Graham finds an advertisement for a cottage in Scotland and impulsively moves with Midge. They have an adventure traveling by rail and bus, where otters shouldn't be. When they finally get to their destination the most friendly of the townsfolk is a young, woman doctor named Mary (McKenna) whom he first sees rescuing a baby swan. This appears to be a place where man and otter can live peacefully away from modern civilization.
