That is yours alone to use.

8 o'clock?


Keep on practicing.

Keep that out of sight.

Tustin, my tests worked.

It will scale up.

We can make our own fresh water.

- We don't have to...

- Now is not the time.

That's it?

You know what? I think you are

holding some back for yourselves...

...or else you're selling it outright.

I can assure you, sir, we haven't.

That's right. You know why?

Because the great Ian Fien owns this ocean...

...and he graciously allows you

and your people to live on it.

And in turn, all he asks

is that you pay a tribute...

...and in turn, he gives you fresh water.

I don't think you're keeping up

your end of the bargain.

Mr. Scrim, sir, we need more water.

Double your tribute by tomorrow.

We have exhausted all the resources nearby.

It will take time to gather more...

...but without water, it's impossible.

So what you're saying is

this amount of water...

...isn't enough for the population

you have here?

- Exactly, sir.

- Oh. Hmm.

By the authority of the Warlord Ian Fien...

...I will reduce your population by 10%.

Take five, six healthy ones, girls.

Willow, this isn't the time to fight.

You want to honor your father, stay alive.

- But what about you?

- I never had a father. Go.

Mr. Scrim, sir, that's not what I meant.

Double your tribute by tomorrow

if you want your people back.

You can take me...

...but release my people.

There's too many.

People of Korotoa...

...prepare for the wrath of Ian Fien.

Gentlemen, please.

And now the retribution...

...of Warlord Ian Fien!

Hey, where are you going?

The fun's just started.


Oh! Hi, kiddies.

Now hear me.

You'll have double tribute by tomorrow...

...or your people will become

the permanent property...

...of Warlord Ian Fien.

Thank you very much.

- What are you doing?

- What's it look like I'm doing?

- I'm taking this!

- You can't.

- I can.

- What about the sharks?

I'll go deep where they won't see me.

Have you even soloed in that thing before?

I made a promise to look after Willow.

I'm keeping that promise.

What are you waiting for? Let's go.

I've never seen anybody do what he did.

I've seen something like that before...

...a long time ago...

...but it was different.

- What do you mean?

- It's hard to explain.

I was just a little kid.

There was someone who was similar...

...but he respected the sharks.

He didn't use them like that.

I always thought it was just a fairy tale

to make the kids feel safe in the water.

It was true.

- And where are they now?

- Long dead.

But there may be another.

You're sounding like the elders now.

Enough with the fairy tales.

- How are we gonna stop him?

- One step at a time.

First, we have to get Willow back.

We have to rescue our people.

Why are we surfacing?

We have to get as close to the stern

of that trawler as possible.

- Take the wheel.

- What... what are you doing?

I'm getting Willow out. Stay hidden,

and if you get in trouble, dive, okay?

You can't do this alone!


Stowaway! Guys, over there!

We... we won't be able to take much

of this. They'll sink us.

- We have to get out of here now!

- What did you do?

- Me? What are you talking about?

- We've got no thrust!

I didn't do anything. It...

It's loose.

Okay, we're good! Go, go, go, go, go, go, go!

- We can't stay here much longer.

- A little further.

We can go deeper than they like to.

I don't think we can stay here much longer.

Are we clear?

I don't know.

We have to go up.

We can't stay here much longer!

We've got to go!

Okay, let's ascend.

I'll have the rest of the tribute
