Sea Fever (2019) Script

Dust welcomes you to a special viewing experience.

We thank you for joining us to explore the depths of the unknown in a dark, isolated, and quiet place -- the ocean.

It goes largely unexplored, and yet holds so much.

A different life exists beneath its undulating surface.

You may have sensed its edges, ventured only to a shallow depth, but science is our most curious passenger, and it seeks more.

This is "Sea Fever."

Oh, thank you!

Aw, nice to meet you!

Good to see you.

Did you get some cake?

Not joining in?

I don't do joining in.

Look, this parasite isn't hadal.

It's in totally the wrong place.

No, you are in totally the wrong place!

What time are you supposed to be on board?

3:00? But this important, Professor.

And your doctorate isn't?

You wouldn't fail me for not going?

I would have no choice.

Off you go.

But I-I know my strengths, I'm a good observer, I'm good at seeing patterns.

You are an excellent scientist. That's not in question.

I need my own space, I can't do other people.

This environment is much more in the form of --

Siobhan! There's some birthday cake over here.

(INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS)

Do you have any friends in this department?

But I -- Get going!

Get your hands dirty, make a few friends.

Sorry.

Skipper would have my guts for garters.

That's a horrible thought!

(LAUGHS)

There she is! Niamh Cinn-Oir!

She's here!

Okay...

Trick is, don't think, just jump.

Go on, give her a hand.

Siobhan, this is my auntie Ciara.

You're the scientist, I hear.

She's a charmer!

Have I ever let you down?

Apart from the times I let you down, I mean.

We'll need a miracle.

Want to meet our student?

Ah, here she is at last.

I am Gerard the skipper, this is Freya, the real boss.

She's a Viking. Keeps us all afloat.

Siobhan, is it?

Gerard? Don't forget to talk to Omid.

Johnny.

(WHEEL CREAKS)

(WATER FLOWING)

You're getting worried about this.

It's our water, it's important.

So when's the heir to the throne arriving?

Three weeks. Oh, yeah?

Then I'm definitely gonna start looking for something else.

So your job is up for grabs, huh?

Take it easy now, I said I'm gonna start looking.

Yeah, you're always saying that.

Alright, lads?

Good to go? Yeah.

Just, uh, checked over his work, made some corrections.

Now listen, we owe you money. Aw, great.

You'll get your last share on top of this share.

What? Soon as we get back, you have my word. Sound okay?

Eh...

Skip, you know, I have the baby coming.

I know, I know. You'll get your shares.

Are we good to go?

Yeah. Alright!

I'll make it up to ya!

(SIGHS) We need a big fucking haul this time.

So, what's your work?

Well, um...

I identify and extrapolate patterns from variations in deep sea faunal behavior.

Then I generate algorithms and computer simulations to predict ecological outcomes.

I meant what is your work while you're on board?

I need to photograph your catch, look for anomalies.

Won't be hard. We get all sorts.

And, um, I need to do a short dive.

Like under water?

Do you dive?

Fishermen don't swim. Why not?

'Cause it's better to go fast.

Nobody wants to drown slow.

(INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS)

(SEAGULLS CRYING)

Uh. Sudi! You haven't met Siobhan.

(LAUGHS) Fucking hell, man!

Well she's pleased to meet you too, mate.

Does the skipper know about this?

He does now!

A redhead. We've already spent her fee.

I know, but we can't afford any bad luck.

So you think the color of my hair is bad luck?

Oh, well there's two schools of thought on that.

I can't change what I am.

I know, I know, but um... Maybe just...?

Not such a bad idea.

Anchors away.

Alright then.

Did it work?

I think so. Thank you.

We can go ashore once we know we're clear.

We areclear.

It took Johnny at most 36 hours from exposure.

So obviously we have to wait 36 hours from when we destroyed the eggs. We're making port tonight.

Freya, if any of us is infected, then --

Then we'll be better off in hospital.

Freya, wait! You know Christmas Island?

What? It has the world's biggest population of red crabs, it used to.

So? So, a few yellow ants arrived and they blinded the red crabs. Just a few ants.

Now there aren't anymore red crabs.

Do you see what I mean?

Yeah. The crabs should have gone to hospital.

This is what I do.

Faunal behavior in spe-- Yes, in a lab.

But this is the real world, with real people!

And in the real world, if we go ashore and one of us is a carrier, then those things will spread, really fast.

Sudi is my responsibility.

And he's bleeding to death in there.

We can't just think about Sudi.

I am not losing one more crew member.

Omid, I need your help.

Yeah, what?

When we get to port, help me keep everyone on the boat.

That'll never happen.

First sniff of land, we'll all be off and gone.

Just until we know we're not infected!

Have you seen Sudi?

Have you seen him?

He needs help now.

Where do you live?

(SIGHS)

Galway.

200,000 people in Galway, right?

Yeah, it's about that. Yeah. We can't say we're so important that it's worth risking the lives of 200,000 people.

Yeah, maybe.

But who are you to say that this poor kid has to die so someone else can avoid the risk?
