A couple of adventurers discover surprising similarities between unexplored underwater world and the life of this exceptionally tolerant nation and the island's nature. Poetical adventure document is woven around a mysterious appearence of a beautiful girl in the deep, subject of the most famous legend of the island - the story of Virginia and Paul. In situations of altered mind states which can be induced by diving, we have a power to enter the depth of our own mind and steal a look into the worlds hitherto consciously unknown to us.

Mark Twain wrote about Mauritius, that it was created as God's model for the Eden, not even having an inkling what the surrounding ocean was hiding.

Escape to Mauritius is the first one of travel documents from a series of a long-term project Escape to Nature, which will introduce film and photographics views of the most beautiful places on the planet. It uncovers the background of technically demanding expedition and the experiences of its creators with undersea photography and filming.
