Guillaume Néry can hold his breath underwater for more than seven minutes, dive more than 126 meters without air and has run on ocean floors around the world. He is a professional freediver, meaning he dives without breathing apparatus. The sport of freediving is dangerous, but Guillaume Néry and Julie Gautier’s film makes it seem peaceful and serene. The film shows non divers a new way of interacting with water - walking, running, jumping, flying. The idea for this film came about when Néry was thinking about those who trek continents by foot. He wanted to do something similar but take viewers on an underwater journey across the globe. His wife, Julie Gautier, who was involved in filming, was also on breath hold.
