Thirty-four volunteer researchers, scientists, and sailors participated in a 5-week long adventure to the remote Sargasso Sea, east of Bermuda. Sailing on a 135-foot tall ship, the SSV Corwith Cramer, operated by the Sea Education Association. The film closely follows four of the scientists as they collect, count, and archive the plastic they collect out of the sea. Along the way, the film examines the history of plastics, the adverse effects it is causing in the ocean, and possible solutions to this problem.
