Synopsis

This 1980s romantic fantasy adventure was inspired by the lives of famed free divers Jacques Mayol and Enzo Maiorca, dramatising their rivalry in the dangerous sport and their passion for the sea. Friends since childhood, the two compete to see who can dive deeper and longer without scuba gear, adjusting their heart rates and breathing patterns so their vital signs more closely resemble dolphins than humans. Jacques must choose between his love for the ocean and Johanna, a New York insurance agent who falls for him when they meet in the Peruvian mountains, prompting her to trail him to Sicily where he is set to face off against Enzo.
