    ‘My Lady Sea’ is an ugly piece of folklore that pushes its female characters into an impossible position between a raging psychotic for a father and a bridegroom who uses tantrums to get whatever he wants. The father tries to control his daughters who in real are dolls and the prince pursues them for marriage. But in the need to control the dolls they both forget the dolls aren’t living. Both men are rewarded for their abysmal behavior. But let alone current real life, not even a character from ancient folklore should get away with something like that.
