This film retraces the history of scuba diving for the first time. The origins of diving date back thousands of years, and through experiments and trials, accidents and discoveries, mankind has pushed back the boundaries and descend to the depths of the abyss.
This film sets out to understand the main physiological principles discovered through experimentation, and also to transport the viewer, immersing them in the fascinating world of underwater exploration which has fired the imagination of men and women for centuries. An historical and scientific documentary about the urge to fathom the vast expanse of the oceans.
