After years of unrestrained pollution and relentless climate change, a mysterious force of the deep starts using the creatures of the ocean as hostile hosts and declares war on humanity. As human society crumbles, a team of scientists must discover the true nature of the attacks and the unfathomable creature behind them, before it is too late.

Our take

An environmental thriller with an international cast that includes Cécile de France, our guest of honor. An unidentified underwater entity suddenly rebels against mankind and the thoughtless way it treats the oceans. Tackling the theme of ecological disaster, this series, produced by the Alliance, takes a stand on the collective responsibility of our societies and delivers a powerful and crucial message.
