Dark Tide

Synopsis: Kate is a shark expert whose business has been failing since a shark attack killed a fellow diver under her command. Once dubbed "the shark whisperer," Kate is haunted by the memory of the attack and unable to get back into the water. With bills piling up and the bank about to foreclose on Kate's boat, Kate's ex-boyfriend Jeff presents her with a lucrative opportunity to lead a thrill-seeking millionaire businessman on a dangerous shark dive - outside the cage. Battling her self-doubts and fear, Kate accepts the proposal and sets a course for the world's deadliest feeding ground - Shark Alley.

You're told your whole life

that sharks are dangerous,

and then finally you're underwater,

and you see the very thing

you're taught to fear,

and it's perfect.

My father once told me...

to be careful of the things...

you love most in the world.

Because if you're not careful,

that very thing can also destroy you.

Okay. You ready?

One, two, three. Rolling.

The only way

you can really learn about sharks...

is to get out of the cage

and actually swim with them.

I look for a curious shark.

That's one that's calm and just cruising.

But if I notice...

that the shark has got its pecs down,

then that means that they

don't want me invading their space.

So, in that case,

I try to swim below the shark...

to obtain the power position.

In order to swim with a shark,

you have to think like a shark.

That's why I make myself really small.

Because the smaller I can make myself,

the more sharks I can

potentially attract to the area.

- No, no. Wait. Hey, Tommy.

- Yeah?

Go to port side.

I want you in the shot.

I don't wanna steal Kate's fire.

If I'm in the shot, everyone's

gonna be checking out my ass.

- Right.

- The camera loves me.

Yeah, that's 'cause

they can't smell you.

- I smell beautiful. Wanna smell?

- Funky. No...

Whoa, guys. Whoa. Whoa.

- I'm rolling.

- That's gross.

Themba, what are you doing?

Changing.

No, you're not.

We're about to go on a dive.

I don't think so, my lovely.

Well, who's gonna do my safety?

Come on. I need you.

You know I love you like a daughter,

but I'm more good to you up here.

Well, I need your eyes on my prize.

His prize.

Sure, sure, sure.

Okay. You win.

Women always win.

Oh.

No, no, no, no, no, no,

no, no, no, no, no, no.

Hey, guys, guys, guys, guys, guys.

What are we doing here?

I mean, come on.

It's not only a movie.

I try to do something about sharks.

Come here, Kate, and do the scenes.

Talk about sharks.

Okay. All right.

We digress.

Okay. Ready?

Okay.

- Okay. Un...

- So,

deux, trois.

Rolling.

In order to really understand

the psychology of the shark,

you've got to get outside the cage,

you've gotta get in the water,

and you've gotta actually

swim with them.

But if you make one...

Kate! Kate!

- It's not funny at all.

- I love you.

- Okay. Come on. I'm just having fun.

- No, that's not funny at all.

- Shots.

- Okay. Okay.

As a free diver,

I'm extremely vulnerable...

when I go to the surface to breathe.

That's why I have

my safety man Themba.

I'm the eyes

in the back of Kate's head,

and she's the eyes behind mine.

I've done, what, 50 dives,

and I only have

- Look. See?

- Oh, love bite.

You thought he needed to floss his teeth.

Hey. Incoming!

Oh, my God.

Look at that, look at that.

Oh-ho! Check this guy out.

- Oh, boy. Here he is.

- Wow.

Bring him in, Tommy.

Bring him in.

Okay. Okay.

Whoa! It's a big male.

What...

Easy, guys.

Hey, he's too aggressive.

Hey, hey, hey. Careful.

Oh, he got it. He got it.

- Ohhh!

- Easy, fella. Easy.

Oh, no, no. We got a lively one.

You're not going in the water with him.

Honey, move over.

Let me get you in the frame.

Second shark coming in!

It looks like a female.

Ah, now, she's more like it.

She's a big girl.

This is more like it.

- Come on. Here she comes.

- Come on, baby. Come on.

- Here she comes.

- Beautiful.

You gonna let me swim with you?

- What do you think?

- I think we got a player.

I'm gonna go down and check things out.

All right. Come on, Jeff. You ready?

Hey, Themba,

keep an eye out for that male.

He looked like trouble, huh?

Kate!
