Journey in to the depths of a wonderland filled with mystery, beauty and power.

This film is an unprecedented look at the lives of these elusive deep-water creatures. Incredible state-of-the-art-underwater filmmaking will take your breath away as you follow the whiplash turns of a shark, the speedy swimming of a swordfish and the gliding manta ray.

Filled with adventure, comedy and drama, Oceans is a fascinating, thought-provoking and unforgettable experience.
