SYNOPSIS

 

Lost in the deep and polluted ocean, the captain of a submarine is trying to find a  place for saving his friends and his little fish.

 

Tankus the Henge and Trukitrek Puppet Company  have dreamt up an animation that is both beautiful in it’s design and poignant in its message dealing as it does with environmental issues, specifically the death of our oceans.

 

The film, made entirely using found or recycled materials, is a “Wake-up Machine” to those who view it, encouraging green and sustainable thinking to a society which needs to pay attention and affect real change before it’s too late.
