The Deep

On a cold night in March 1984, a few miles off the south coast of Iceland, a fishing boat sank along with all of its men. Miraculously, one of its crewmembers survived. After six hours battling the ocean for his life, the exhausted young titan, washes ashore, only to find himself in a deadly lava field.
