Mają zaledwie godzinę na wydostanie się na powierzchnię.

PLOT: Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) are sisters on holiday in Mexico. Lisa’s boyfriend has broken up with her because „she made the relationship boring”. Kate attempts to cheer Lisa up by taking her out drinking and dancing at 10:00pm

As they journey out to the cage diving spot Captain Taylor baits the sharks. Lisa is sceptical about the entire dive, but Captain Taylor dismisses her concerns. The locals dive first in the cage. Unbeknownst to everyone on the boat, the cable supporting the cage starts to fray. The men return to the surface unharmed and Captain Taylor prepares to send Lisa and Kate down. While Lisa and Kate are in the cage, it breaks off of the boat, sending them to the sea floor – 47 meters down (154 ft.). This also takes them out of communication range. Kate swims up to forty meters to resume communications with Captain Taylor, who tells her Javier (Chris J. Johnson) will be coming down with a spare winch to pull them up. He also advises them to stay in the cage as the sharks are all around. Both women are quickly running out of air, but they wait in the cage until they see a torch in the distance. Thinking that Javier cannot see them, Lisa swims out to get him, as Kate’s air is lower due to the previous swim. Lisa swims towards the light, low to the sea floor to avoid shark attacks from the bottom. A shark tries to attack Lisa but she swims into a small grotto to avoid it. Continuing to go towards the light, she comes to a crevasse with no bottom in sight.

Swimming over the cliff towards the light she finds the torch but no Javier. While looking around, she gets confused about her distance from the cage and Kate. Just as Javier appears and attempts to usher her back towards safety he is attacked and killed by a shark. Lisa takes Javier’s spear gun and the spare winch, and swims back towards the cage. With the newly acquired torch as well as the spear gun Lisa swims up and notifies Taylor to pull them up. Disaster strikes as they are being winched to safety—the replacement winch line snaps and the cage descends back to the sea floor. This time, the cage lands on Lisa’s leg, pinning her down. Lisa and Kate panic as they realise they are now both low on options as well as air.

Kate decides to swim up to communication range so that she can tell Taylor about their low air as well as Lisa’s predicament. She succeeds and Captain Taylor tells her he is sending down some air tanks and the Mexican coast guard is an hour out. He also warns her that the second tank may cause nitrogen narcosis which can lead to hallucinations. Kate finds the air tanks just as her original tank goes empty. She also finds the three flares for them to use to signal the coast guard.

As she returns to the cage, Kate is attacked and dragged away by a shark. Lisa, still pinned and running low on air, uses the spear from the spear gun to pull the tank towards her. In the process, she is cut by the spear on her hand. She attaches the new tank, and shortly after doing so, she hears Kate communicating with her over their radio; Kate is injured and low on air, and the blood is attracting more sharks. Lisa states she will find her, and uses her BCD to lift up the cage, freeing her leg. After Lisa finds Kate, Taylor informs them the coast guard is still some time out and they need to get back in the cage. Lisa adamantly refuses due to the nature of Kate’s wounds, and they decide to swim to the surface. As they begin to swim up, they use one of the three flares to scare the sharks. At the 20-meter mark, they are reminded by Taylor they must wait five minutes for their blood levels to acclimate. During this time, the first flare burns out. Reaching for the second flare, Kate drops it. Lisa lights the third flare, which reveals the face of a shark. The sisters are now surrounded by them and must rush to the surface.

Taylor yells for them to drop their gear and make a break for the surface. They swim as fast as they can to the surface near the boat. As they cling to a life ring to get to the boat, one of the sharks bites Lisa’s leg and pulls her back down to the water. Lisa fights the shark by hitting it and gouging its eye out, which causes the shark to release her. Captain Taylor and the other men are able to pull Lisa and Kate onto the boat and begin administering first aid. However, as Lisa stares at her hand on the deck of the boat, it is revealed that she has been hallucinating for some time due to the excess nitrogen in her blood from the air tanks. Her leg is still trapped under the cage on the ocean floor as she laughs and imagines that she is talking to Kate on the boat deck. The coast guard comes to rescue her and carries Lisa to the surface without Kate. Lisa, as she is slowly and cautiously being brought to the surface, comes out of her hallucination, and also notices her sister is not with her. She starts to cry and call out to Kate, realising that Kate was killed.
