It was the last wish of Eric Coleman's deceased wife. Now a young widower, he descends to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to fulfill her life's goal. There, with eight other crew members, he harnesses the power of deep ocean currents using thousands of submerged turbines.

Hailed as the saviors of an economically failing west coast, the crew's celebration is short-lived. A pressure valve ruptures. Injured and beaten in the process, the crew waits for medical attention that never arrives. They suspect the bureaucracy that sent them to The Thales may have intended for the station to fail. And one of their own had to have been the instigator.

As disaster strikes, Eric becomes obsessed with restoring the broken station. He must overcome his grief if he is to save not only himself, but the crew he’s come to know as the only family he has left.
