Inspired by the life of Jacques Cousteau, Wes Anderson's love letter to discovery and adventure stars Bill Murray as the titular oceanographer, who is on a mission to enact revenge on the Jaguar Shark, which killed his partner.

Along for the ride are his emotional second-in-command Klaus, a Brazilian safety expert (and David Bowie enthusiast), a pregnant journalist, and a new crewman who claims to be his long lost son.

"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it."
