'The Burning Sea' Plot
Based in 1969, The Burning Sea kicks off with the Norwegian government announcing its discovery of one of the world’s largest oil mines in the North Sea, starting an offshore drilling project.
Five decades in, the environmental ramifications of the oil mining begin to surface, including a crack on the ocean floor that causes the rig to collapse.
A crew of investigators, including submarine operator Sofia, goes to research the cause of the damage and search for the missing experts. They discover that the one event is just the beginning of a potential apocalyptic sequence.
As the rig operators are evacuated, Sofia’s boyfriend Stian gets trapped on the ocean floor, and Sofia must go in after him.
The Burning Sea is the latest instalment in the environmental catastrophe films from the crew behind The Quake (2018) and The Wave (2015).
