Two children, Jacques Mayol (Jean-Marc Barr) and Enzo Molinari (Jean Reno), grew up on the Greek island of Amorgos and become well known freedivers, swimmers who can remain underwater for great times and at great depths. Insurance broker Johana Baker (Rosanna Arquette) is introduced to Jacques and secretly falls in love with him. When she hears that Jacques will be at the World Diving Championships in Taormina, Sicily, she travels there to meet him again, and they fall in love. However none of them realize the extent of Jaques’ obsession with the depths.
