Diving For Walt (Or Under The Sea)
Thousands of years in the future, in the sea over what used to be Florida, two deep sea divers discover what remains of Disney World. But what will they do with this exciting and powerful discovery? What follows is an exploration of ambition and legacy  all under the watchful eye of a very shy sea monster.
