About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Munich Film Festival

A dive at one of the world’s most remote spots becomes a fight to the death for sisters Drew And May when a landslide sends rocks tumbling into the sea, trapping May in the depths.

As their oxygen runs low, its a frantic race against the clock as Drew desperately tries to find help in the isolated landscape above water, whilst May faces her own psychological battle as she confronts this devastating reality. Despite all her ingenuity and strength, Drew ultimately finds herself having to make a hard choice.

“an immersive big screen experience… there are no killer creatures lurking in the depths… Instead, it is about the resourcefulness of the women and their determination”

—Allan Hunter, Screen Daily
