Pumalela is a young black South African orphan. He is from the Xhosa tribe and has a difficult start to his life until he is picked up on the side of the road by Ben in his taxi. Ben and Mandisa raise Pumalela as their own son in a township called Vrygrond in Cape Town. He receives tons of 'booming' love from them both and learns how to cope with the hard ways of township living and the 'taxi life'. Pumie develops a passion for the harbour and the yacht club and meets a white girl who is obviously very different to him. She lives on the other side of town in a leafy suburb - her parents regularly indulge in large quantities of gin and tonic. Despite everything, they quickly become firm friends. Together they get invited to join 5 others to cross the ocean aboard a yacht - heading for the Caribbean. Pumalela at 17 years old experiences life at sea - it is both frightening and exciting to him. One day whilst happily sailing along a massive disaster occurs and they find themselves in an underwater world full of terrifying, dark-souled creatures. They know that they have to find their way out of this horrific place before they lose 'themselves.' And as if they haven't got enough to deal with, a huge green luminous cat like creature, with seriously bad breath follows them everywhere. Finally it comes down to a duel. Someone has to lose...
