THE PLOT

The biologist Alberto O'Leary sets out on an expedition to the bottom of the sea to search for an animal that can measure up to fourteen meters, with eight arms and two bristling tentacles with sharp hooks and powerful sucks. O'Leary invites Aunt Abigaíl with her three nephews (Simón, Lucas and Isabel) and Juana to the expedition, who embark on a research vessel to search for the sea monster that no one has ever seen in their environment. Many doubt the existence of this animal that hides in the ocean thousands of meters deep. Can the daring adventurers find it and survive in the most hostile environment on the planet, where the colossal squid is just one of the dangers?
