Diving School


This highly dramatic and often humorous documentary follows ten students on one of the world’s toughest training courses.

Below the surface the students face the challenge of zero visibility and the ever present danger of the bends. With the students forced to work as a team to survive, the pressure mounts, ultimately reaching disastrous levels: two students won’t make it and one will almost die.

Behind the scenes affairs are just as torrid, the School is in financial crisis and the Managing Director is struggling to fight a takeover bid by his arch rival.
