An underwater oil field located south of Jeju Island, Hae-jun is working as a marine equipment manager on an oil prospecting ship called Eclipse. Subsequently joining the crew is Jeong-man, a former colleague of Hae-jun’s father, assigned to Eclipse as captain. Though his job is to oversee the withdrawal of the ship, he suggests conducting some drilling one last time.
After three weeks of preparation, Hae-jun takes the new recruit underwater, but he sinks to the bottom of the sea when the equipment fails. Shortly thereafter crew members begin to turn up dead, one by one, their bodies viciously multilated.
What the few survivors soon discover is a transparent underwater creature they had encountered once before. The viral monster infiltrated the ship through the drilling pipe and has been feeding on the crew to survive. Hae-jun and his colleagues’ frantic fight for survival begins.
