Deep is a 2017 computer-animated film directed by Julio Soto Gurpide. Inspiration for the film came from Julio's deep sea diving experiences.
The film takes place in the post-apocalyptic future by the Atlantic Ocean, where, because of the actions of people, the planet Earth was subjected to an ecological catastrophe, as a result the Earth was flooded. At the same time, sea inhabitants also suffered a catastrophe. Octopus-Grimpoteuthis Kraken managed to save several inhabitants and formed a safe place to live with them.
Kraken's grandson, Deep, considers life to be boring, but shows an interest in objects made by people. He also involves his friends: angler fish Evo and shrimp Alice. Soon one of Deep's "pranks" leads to the fact that he accidentally endangers the inhabitants of his home, because of which they were enclosed by stones. Deep learns from Kraken that only the white whale Nathan can help them, and tell his grandson the necessary landmarks where Nathan can be found. Deep with Evo and Alice set out to find Nathan.
After passing several landmarks, friends get to the sunken ship (which is the Titanic), where they find the vampire squid Norma, and she makes them listen to her performance, and then she tells them that in order to find Nathan, they need to get to Broadway. The heroes leave the ship with difficulty, since Norma would not let them go.
Along the way, Deep is attacked by moray Maura, but immediately after hearing from him that he has friends, he admits that she is lonely. Deep adds Maura to the team, despite the fact that Alice and Evo were against taking a predator that almost ate them on the first night.
Having reached the Brooklyn Bridge, the friends found themselves surrounded by crabs, where their leader, the yeti crab Rico, requires a dance battle so that he can skip them. Alice taking part in the action, strikes Rico with his performance, and he falls in love with her. After that, the heroes pass through the Brooklyn Bridge, then on the streets of flooded New York, strangely enter the radiation zone and overcome a number of undead fish.
Soon, when it was not clear where they are, the characters have disagreements, where everyone accuses Deep on a dangerous journey. But then they meet the penguin Darcy and his assistants: the walrus Luigi and the dolphin Ralph. While Darcy and Luigi distracted the main characters by watching the film about the project "Ark-1" and "Ark-2" (which saved humans and ground animals respectively, leaving the Earth and went to settle another planet), they discuss the plan to deceive them by freezing and leave the Earth on the "Ark-3" (which is for aquatic animals), also they involve Maura and deceive her too.
When the heroes are placed in a trap, they finally met Nathan, who is chained, and then immediately learned of Darcy's plan to freeze everyone, including the deceived Maura, who had not fallen into the trap. Deep, Alice and Evo managed to disable the cell without letting it freeze, and then get out of the locked cell and join Maura in battle against Darcy, Luigi and Ralph. As a result, they triumph over the trio and are ejected from the already-going "Ark-3" along with Nathan and the other sea creatures.
Returning home, the characters, along with Nathan, begin to free the rubble of Kraken and the people, where Deep nearly sacrificed his life to completely free himself of the debris. After liberation, Maura begins to offer an idea where it will be possible to start fertilizing and increase the population, while Deep (believing that he was the last one of his kind) finds love. And as for Darcy, Ralph and Luigi, they are stranded on a floating ice floe in the Arctic Ocean near Greenland crying out for their mothers of their kinds desperately.
