This movie will make laugh, cry, have agony. The truly majestic underwater scenes, the beautiful landscapes of Peru, Italy, and Greece is one of the film's advantages.
The review of this Movie prepared by Mary Savvidou

This film is set in the world of free diving, a very dangerous, spirtual sport. The film plays like a sport/buddy movie with a little romance to boot. At its core the film looks at what it means to be human, and what our place is in the world. The main charecter strugles to fit in on the surface and ultimatelfinds his place in a very haunting final scene that will leave you thinking for hours after the film is over.
