The entry to the most important underwater decorated cave in Europe is hidden 35 meters below sea level in southern France, near the city of Marseille. The rich paintings discovered 20 years ago date back 30,000 years and are threatened by rising waters. In a race against time, a full-sized replica of the cave, due to be finished by June 2022, is being constructed to preserve the paintings. This film follows an ambitious artistic and scientific project alongside prehistorians, geologists and craftspeople to retrace the incredible history of early human settlements in Provence.
