Young Abby lives alone with her mother on a pristine bay on the coast of Australia. When she learns the skill of apnoea diving from her, an unknown underwater world opens up to Abby. Fascinated by the diversity of the sea, she befriends a "blue groper", a giant wrasse, while diving. But the untouched nature is endangered by unscrupulous poachers and an unequal fight to save the endangered marine fauna begins for Abby. She is supported in her commitment by her mother, a fatherly fisherman and a young Aboriginal Australian.

A film about the beauty and fragility of this ecosystem threatened by humans.
