“Based on the novel by former war correspondent J.M. Ledgard, the story begins with a deliriously wild love affair between two people near the resort town of Dieppe, on France’s northern coast. James (James McAvoy) is a globe-trotting water engineer, while Danielle (Alicia Vikander) is a bio-mathematician working on a deep-sea diving project. They fall rapidly and unexpectedly into each other’s arms, even though their jobs are destined to separate them. Neither is fully prepared for what will happen next.
While Danny, fascinated with exploring the ocean’s greatest depths, sets off on a perilous quest, James leaves for Somalia, where he is soon sucked into a geopolitical vortex that puts him in grave danger. Both characters are subject to different kinds of isolation as they pine for each other; their determination to reconnect becomes as much an existential journey as a love story.”
