Come aboard the Calypso for a week-long scuba adventure in the Sea of Cortez, an ocean teeming with marine life. Your dive master is Catalina, who has spent the past few years traveling to exotic locations around the world, spending every moment possible in her beloved ocean. Your travel companions are fifteen others - not a full boat - but they include families, friends, and a married couple.
The diving is challenging, the sights include manta rays, octopus, and sea lions. A favorite site is El Lavadero, Las Animas. Las Animas is named after the church bells which ring to summon lost souls and El Lavadero means the washing machine. The dive site is often referred to as the washing machine of lost souls.
All is well until an unexpected tragedy sends those aboard the dive boat into unchartered territory, leading Catalina to question her passion for the ocean and all that it holds. Will she ever trust the invitation again to "come on in, the water's fine?"
Back on land, Catalina does her best to forget what happened on the Calypso. But someone else will never forget and vows to make Catalina pay.
