«OPIS FILMU» 11 kilometrów pod powierzchnią oceanu coś się zbudziło… Załoga kopalni Kepler od początku wiedziała, że ich misja będzie trudna: przed nimi trzydzieści dni w wąskich korytarzach i ciasnych kabinach podwodnej platformy zbudowanej tak, by wytrzymała niewiarygodnie wysokie ciśnienie towarzyszące odwiertom na dnie oceanu. Ale po niszczycielskim trzęsieniu ziemi rozpętuje się piekło. Wkoło wyją syreny alarmowe, strumienie wody eksplodują przez żelbetową konstrukcję z niewyobrażalną siłą, rozrywając ją w ciągu kilku sekund na strzępy. Dzięki zdolności szybkiego myśleniu i wrodzonej zaradności inżynier Norze Price udaje się, choć wielkim kosztem, uratować siebie i powstrzymać nieuchronną katastrofę.

«PLOT» Kepler 822, a research and drilling facility operated by Tian Industries at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, is struck by a strong earthquake. As part of the facility is destroyed by the quake, mechanical engineer Norah Price and her colleagues, Rodrigo and Paul, make their way to the escape pod bay. However, the three discover that all of the escape pods have already been deployed, with Captain Lucien being the only person in the area when the three arrive. Together they reach a control base and find biologist Emily Haversham and engineer Liam Smith, who are unsuccessful in their attempts to make contact with the surface. Lucien suggests using pressurized suits to walk one mile across the ocean floor to Roebuck 641 in the hope of resurfacing from there. As they descend in a freight elevator, Rodrigo’s defective helmet implodes under the water pressure. The surviving crew see a distress beacon from one of the escape pods below, and Smith and Paul go to investigate. As they arrive at the location, they find a body in the rubble. A creature emerges from the corpse’s back and attacks. Smith kills the creature and takes it inside. Haversham examines the creature and realizes that it belongs to a previously undiscovered species.

The five make their way to Roebuck, but as they are walking, Kepler explodes and nearly buries them in debris. Smith is hit, but Price and Lucien save him. They manage to get through an access tunnel to an intermediate station, where they can charge and clean their suits. However, they find that Smith’s oxygen scrubber is badly damaged from the debris. On their way through the access tunnel, Paul is attacked by an unknown creature, dragged underwater and killed. Before the team leaves the access tunnel, they find that Smith’s damaged oxygen pod will cause him to suffocate from the explosion’s toxic fumes. Unwilling to leave another crew member behind, Price, Lucien and Haversham agree to help Smith walk. The four set off across the ocean floor, but a humanoid creature appears and drags Smith into a cave. Lucien manages to get Smith out, but is himself pulled from the other three. Price is dragged along with Lucien, but Lucien sacrifices himself to spare Price from the increasing pressure change.

Price ends up at the abandoned Sheppard station and is able to change her damaged diving suit before continuing toward Roebuck. Walking along the ocean floor, she reunites with Haversham and Smith, and proceeds to help drag Smith. As they enter Roebuck, they encounter a nest of the humanoid creatures hanging from the ceiling and try to sneak by, but the sound of Haversham’s oxygen alarm wakes the creatures. Price is partially swallowed by one of the creatures but is able to kill it and free herself. The three are able to reach the escape pod bay, but Price discovers that only two of the pods work. Price and Haversham manage to get the ailing Smith into a pod, and Price persuades Haversham to take the last one. As this happens, a gigantic creature emerges and attacks the Roebuck while the smaller creatures follow the two escape pods. Price, aware of her impending death, increases the energy levels of the core engines so that they explode, killing the creatures and allowing the escape pods to reach the surface. Tian Industries attempts to cover up the incident and keeps Haversham and Smith’s testimonies classified. The company goes on to say that they intend to expand their drilling efforts.
