But day after day, she is disappointed. The villagers try to convince her to give up her vigil.

No," she would say, He will come home soon." Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Heavens, takes pity on her grief and turns Ling Yee and her child into stone so that they would mourn no more.

The fisherman eventually finds his way homeonly to discover that his wife has been transformed into the Rock Maiden.

Will the family forever be kept apart? Or will devotion and faithfulness ultimately be rewarded?
