One day, a new recruit sinks to the bottom of the sea. Evidence suggests that it was not an accident as other crew members begin to turn up dead. The few survivors soon discover an underwater creature. This viral monster infiltrated the ship through the drilling pipe and has been feeding on crew to survive. As Hae-jun and her crew members lose all communications to the outside world, their frantic fights for their lives begin.
