We follow a young woman ‘Nita who would be the first of her family to go to university in the UK. But her dreams are thwarted by both her own mistakes and her widower father’s desire to move the family back to Iran. She runs away to the seaside in hope of escape…

The sea does not belong to despots. Upon its surface men can still exercise unjust laws, fight, tear one another to pieces, and be carried away with terrestrial horrors. But at thirty feet below its level, their reign ceases, their influence is quenched, and their power disappears. Ah! sir, live—live in the bosom of the waters! There only is independence! There I recognize no masters! There I am free!”  - Captain Nemo - Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea., 

Two Seas is a short film by Orlando Cubitt made as part of Film London’s “London Calling 2014”. Shot on Location in London, Essex and Underwater in Basildon. Photography was completed in June 2014.
