The film recounts the life experiences of six protagonists, divers specialized in operations at great depths. In an operation conducted on the offshore platform Luna, for weeks their life takes place between the bottom of the sea, 100 meters deep, and the platform’s hyperbaric chamber. The extremely dangerous work-environment obliges every gesture and every action to be reinvented, to be different from how it would be out of the water, in order to capture a new normality.
