Jacques Mayol-- a gifted diver. He was famous for the first free diver who set the record of descending over 100 meters in 1976.  In that time, nobody thought that a human being can free dive over 100 meters. His diving life was portrayed in a quality  film“Le Grand Bleu” and his lifelong passion for diving was rooted in Sea of Karatsu where he met first a dolphin in his life.  This filmconsists of interviews with the people who shared a time with Jacques and the beautiful nature of Karatsu. He has been only talked as a giant, but this filmmirrors his true self and the nature of Karatsu that attracted Jacques deeply.
