Economic and political warfare has already begun in the abyss.

Colossal sums have been invested to start extracting minerals. Analysts have calculated that a single mine could bring in $1 billion a year. But this exploitation could cause irreversible damage to the marine biodiversity essential to our planet's survival.

Along the way, she comes across companies desperate to drill the seabed.
