Mark Twain once wrote that Mauritius was created as a model of Heaven.
The film shows us the surprising similarities between the underwater world and the life of this exceptionally tolerant nation. It unveils the colorfulness of the underwater world, its rules and strange symbioses which take our couple of adventurers, Petra Dolezalova and Libor Spacek, during their night dives. The story is woven around the most famous legend of the island, the mysterious appearance of a beautiful girl under the sea. In situations of altered mind states which can be induced by deep diving, one can experience images filling in the mosaic of life.
