The Swedish/Norwegian half sisters are doing their yearly winter diving in northern Norway. An accident occurs and a rock traps Tuva against the sea bottom 30 meters down. Ida's abilities to handle a crisis are tested hard. On their own without help from the outer world are the sisters forced to rescue themselves.

Beautiful scenery, well shot - but too many things that irritated me
As some have reviewed it before me, the movie certainly has good elements:
the environment is beautiful !
the shots under & above water are really good
acting is good
But personally for me, some elements were irritating as hell:
the main actress plays a pretty stupid person (some could argue she's maybe inexperienced as a diver and does silly things and/ or attribute her reactions to panic). But still, it's ok to be stupid in a film - but if it starts to be irritating... it's too much
I'm a diver and wow some pretty amazing stuff happening under water. Maybe for the non-educated viewer it looks ok, but as a diver ... it's not realistic. The amount of dives/ quick surfacing/ recompressing she's doing... don't think she'd still be walking. Freediving to 33m (in a drysuit), looking for the bottle on the bottom on one breath, ... a lot of those things are not realistic
A pity ! I think with some small finetunings this could have been a very good movie.
