A young reporter is lured to the ocean by a self-appointed professor who claimes to have a groundbreaking science project to present. But when the two characters meet face to face nothing is as it seems to be. And what starts as a simple interview situation on the beach becomes a struggle for believe and life itself – in a ludicrous way.
