Forget IT! Forget Annabelle: Creation! This is a real horror story.

The story of the world’s oceans; how we and countless other living creatures in the food web depend on it, and how in less than fifty years half of its marine life has been lost. Over-fishing, illegal fishing, wasteful and short-sighted practices, the careless disposal of fishing nets and the demon plastic (it is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish) all play a part.

Amongst the gloom however, there is hope. But time is running out. Director Karina Holden presents an often visually stunning documentary told through the eyes of some of those dedicated to preserving the oceans and its wildlife.
