When Professor Aronnax and his two companions find themselves aboard the Nautilus they are amazed by the huge and powerful submarine and its mysterious owner, Captain Nemo. The three friends travel vast distances beneath the oceans, exploring an undersea realm full of excitement, discoveries and danger.
Captain Nemo seems to have some secret purpose. Why has he shut himself off from the world, and what are his plans for the Nautilus? The captain has told them that they can never leave his vessel. Will the Professor and his companions find a way to escape from their underwater prison?
