At the age of 14, Madison Stewart opted to be home schooled on a yacht on the Great Barrier Reef. Upon learning that a whopping 80,000 sharks are legally caught in this supposedly protected heritage site, Stewart has set out to educate the world about both the perilous consequences of such practices, and about the true nature of the creatures she loves. This doc follows the now 18-year-old Madi underwater and on land as she pursues her mission.
