Based on a true story. Amidst a mid-life crisis, Marina chances upon free diving and decides to commit herself to this high-risk sport entirely. Each time, submerged with just one breath in the oceanic abyss, she learns to embrace inner peace.
The film was inspired by the life of the late Natalia Molchanova, the world-famous Russian champion freediver. Following her divorce, she found her love in freediving, one of the most extreme sports in the world, built on diving as deep as possible on a single breath. She later went missing during another dive and was declared dead in 2015.
The film is the first Russian feature film shot in the open sea at a hundred-meter depth. All diving scenes were filmed in the open sea off the coast of Malta.
