If a 'Map to Paradise' existed, what would this map look like?
We will take you on a journey to discover what ‘underwater paradise’ might look like, and to show you that dreams do come true. We will tell you a tale about the global birth of the movement to protect the world's oceans, and will aspire to convince viewers to feel and believe that it is possible to save our planet. Travel from the underwater lands of ice and corals to the headquarters of the United Nations to engage with a character-driven collection of stories about how we can help to save the sea from today’s greatest perils, which threaten life itself. Through the eyes of the likes of a prince, a president, a pirate and an island chief, discover the magic of what a bountiful underwater paradise means for humankind.
On the way, we will visit the old wealthy fishing ports of Europe and some remote islands in Asia where an old chief sets sail to spread the knowledge of what a new world might look like. A president shares a telling tale about a mermaid legend, and you’ll meet a fisherman from a sleepy fishing village of Greece, who laments that he is the last generation of fishermen – as he says there are no fish left to fish. Meanwhile, in his neighbouring country of Italy, lives a scientist, who dreams big and beyond his time. He meets a prince, who helps him on his quest to save the ocean, while a marine biologist studying whales in Antarctica learns how to step outside of the world of science to do everything in his power to change the fate of our dying underwater world, to turn it back into a brilliant underwater paradise like it once was.
The quest to protect the sea is both arduous and long. It rests upon the dreams of individuals and nations to find paradise. Saving our ancient oceans and rediscovering the paradise humans once enjoyed is possible, but we must move quickly to enshrine the world’s big blue map.
