Synopsis

A group of daring divers struggling to complete an oil drilling operation in deep tropical seas, and the relationship between the diving supervisor, Ben Laforche, and Helen Kyger, a documentary filmmaker hired by the oil company to produce a film to better its image. As the work aboard the rig progresses, relations between Ben and Helen become tense. When disaster hits the rig, the machismo attitudes of the workers must change to those of heroism if they are to survive. In the process a new relationship develops between Ben and Helen.
