Pressure

Synopsis: In the Somalia coast, the veteran divers Engel, Mitchell, Hurst and the rookie Jones are assigned to repair an oil pipeline on the bottom of the sea by the Vaxxilon representative Karsen. They are advised that a storm is coming, but the Diving Support Vessel Lorimer lowers the bell with the team. They succeed to weld the pipeline but the storm comes and the vessel sinks, killing the whole crew. Short of the oxygen, the divers try to communicate with the surface and the leader Mitchell keeps the hope that they will be saved. But will the oil company send another vessel to rescue them?

( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )

ENGEL (V.O.)

A man goes to sea

for many reasons.

Perhaps to sense its beauty

and stare at the infinite

horizon...

that offers no questions,

seeks no answers.

Perhaps to stand in awe

of its power, savagery, grace.

This is all true, but there are

also those who go to sea...

ultimately because they

are lost and never want

to be found.

( MEN SHOUTING, INDISTINCT )

GUARD (OVER P.A.)

Security, code orange.

KARSEN (OVER P.A.)

I need her ready to go!

Do you want to be responsible

for shutting down the entire

pipeline?

As soon as you get that

chopper up, you call me,

you understand?

Why is the ship turned?

We got a low-pressure read

on the pipeline and manifold.

It's more than likely an anchor

dragged down from a passing

barge, but we don't know.

That doesn't answer

my question.

No, I thought not.

Just bring me what I need.

Right. We need to put

a team in the water.

Who do we have?

Dive teams have already

flown back.

And there's... Harris.

No, Harris is a f*ck-up...

take Hurst.

It's gonna need a coated well,

so that's you.

A DC178 is right here.

Just make sure

that well holds tight.

You know there's a storm

in the way.

Trust me, I've had another

welder on this boat...

we wouldn't be having

this conversation.

You're in charge,

get it done.

I'll make sure upstairs

knows who to thank.

All right.

Oh, and give the kid

some bell time.

The kid? He hasn't gone

below 30 meters.

Putting a team down now.

Go! F*ck off!

Yeah, yeah,

they're on their way.

Hey, kid!

You're about to get broken out.

About time.

Congratulations, get suited up!

See you later on.

Hurst.

[HURST]

F*ck off.

Hurst.

It's a little early for Bible

class, ain't it, Mitch?

Oh, I think it's

a little late for that.

You know, it's funny.

I thought this was gonna be

a strictly no-alcohol vessel.

Yeah, I heard that, as well.

But if you need something,

you should let me know.

I need to get a team

in the water.

My shift's over, mate,

I'm done.

Double pay.

I'll start packing now.

Don't be packing

any of that, okay?

[JONES]

More money.

Yeah, I'll be back-- well, I'll

be back on Saturday, won't I?

It's only an extra day,

isn't it?

We've been through this,

haven't we? Just get whichever

pram you want.

I love you.

LISA (ON PHONE)

I love you, too. Take care.

CARMEL (OVER PHONE)

Hi, you've got the Mitchell

residence...

unfortunately we're a bit busy

to take your call right now...

but leave your message

after the beep and we'll

call you back.

Have a beautiful day.

( BEEPS )

( DISTANT THUNDER CRASHING )

KARSEN (OVER P.A.)

Dive team A report

to Sat Chamber 2 for lock-in.

Well...

This is gonna be a bundle

of laughs, isn't it?

See you at about midnight, Mike.

MAN (OVER P.A.)

Okay, Mitch, let's mix team

ready...

for atmospheric compression

and diving depth.

KARSEN (OVER P.A.)

Ready for blowdown?

Go for a seal.

Blowing down.

Got a seal.

MAN (OVER P.A.)

SAT Chamber 2, we have secure.

Five meters a minute, blowdown

commencing...

increasing the pressure to

650 feet, seabed equivalence.

You'll be at depth pressure

in 60 minutes. Over.

Look, kid, you might want

to take the lid off.

What?

You might want to unscrew that.

F*cking... bollocks!

For f*ck's sake, man.

( OMINOUS MUSIC FADES UP )

KARSEN (OVER P.A.)

Going to go transfer

to diving bell B, over.

TECH (OVER P.A.)

The diver recovery system

is working properly.

Stabilizing clump weight.
