The ocean is vast and full of creatures that are both beautiful and fearsome. From the largest of mammals to the smallest of fish, the beauty and wonder of the water remain a mystery to behold. It may seem small, but the impact of throwing that piece of trash can last a lifetime. Two dancers discover the effects of littering together when they go beneath the waves to swim with the turtles and amazing sea creatures. Along the way they are followed by the frightening trash creatures, created by the waste that humans leave behind. They experience first-hand the devastation that plastics and other waste have wrought on the fragile habitats that exist there. The Ballet and Jazz, Tap, Aerial companies come together to tell this dynamic and important story.
