    A breathtakingly immersive travelogue that packs a persuasive environmental undercurrent.

    Structurally, the film is somewhat rambling and unfocused even within its tight 40-minute running time, cutting away periodically to address the ways in which overfishing and rising water levels have severely impacted the reef and its ability to support plant and animal life. The lessons are valuable and necessary, but they’re not particularly well integrated.

    This is a film with a positive message that's delivered eloquently, and who's to say that joyous purpose doesn't have its place?
