A group of underwater divers discover by chance the wreckage of a large nineteenth century boat at the foot of a reef in the Re d Sea. This important discovery arouses their curiosity and they decide to find out more about it. After months of research in England they manage to reconstruct the story of the Carnatic, a post-boat in service on the route to India which was sunk with a cargoe of about 40.000 gold sterling. The official story of the sinking, inferred from the records, does not convince the divers who have visited the wreckage and who decide to return to the spot to verify their theory...and with the veiled proposal of looking for the rest of the treasure which has not been entirely recovered
