Recorded live in 2019, this is a document of Magisphere's descent to the ocean floor to locate the troubled underwater research platform Theta-5. Barely any light reaches these benthic depths, where the station sits mysteriously empty, its consoles still glowing with the last commands entered before the crew disappeared. Following a trail of clues, Magisphere descend further past luminous jellyfish into the caverns of an undersea volcano, where they uncover the final secret of Theta-5.
