La biologa marina Tierney Thys ci invita a visitare il mondo sottomarino del 'Mola mola', il pesce luna, gigantesco abitante degli oceani. Crogiolandosi sotto i raggi del sole, nutrendosi di meduse e 'andando a fare i massaggi', questo behemoth ci rivela aspetti importanti sulla vita delle profondità oceaniche.
