Terrifying tales of undersea adventures unfold on this documentary, which talks to a variety of people who have made the ocean a second home. Many of the tales are first-hand accounts of shark attacks, but there are also fascinating revelations from free divers who compete to plunge to the lowest depths, and workers who often have to spend extraordinary stretches of time submerged beneath the sea. Stacy Keach narrates.
