    Summary

    Lance is accepted to his dream internship at Galra Bio, the biggest marine biology center in the world. He gets to work with dolphins under the supervision of Galra's lead Biologist, Lotor himself. Any student in his shoes would kill for this position. Everything is going great until he ends up getting locked into the building after hours.

    Trying to find a way out, Lance discovers Galra Bio's secret: a deep-sea creature that looks all too human. Enchanted and obsessed, he comes back night after night to visit with it. During his late night escapades, Lance discovers something crazy: this creature? This fish-man-thing? He can *communicate* - not just like Lance's dolphins, but as an actual person. Lance has a choice: does he ignore the horrible experiments being done to something so human, or does he risk everything to save it and set it free?

    Turns out, it’s not a choice at all.
