Seven years ago, scientist Jonas Taylor panicked while in his submersible, accidentally killing two people. Taylor thought he saw a prehistoric, supposedly extinct Carcharodon Megalodon, a prehistoric shark. Meg, as she is affectionately known in the story, escapes her dungeon in the depths of the Mariana Trench and gets loose in the open ocean. Taylor's job is to track her down before she sets off a chain of events that destroys the oceanic ecosystem. The only trouble is Meg is a huge 65 foot long 40,000 lb shark!
