Synopsis

At the beginning of 1953, the magazine Sogno reported the sad news: “Sofia Lazzaro, the unforgettable star of many of our photonovels, has been kidnapped by cinema”. The Sofia in question will swap the “f” in her name for a “ph”, and change her surname to Loren. The kidnapper goes by the name Africa sotto i mari, a love story with an exotic backdrop, praised at the time of its release, in particular for its underwater sequences, enhanced by the fabulous on-screen colours and objectively remarkable. Today, those seaweed, shark and octopus have become of secondary importance. The siren who continues to enchant was a fresh starlet back then, already bursting out like none other. It matters little that she did not have her own voice yet. 

During a scientific expedition on the Red Sea, the capricious daughter of the millionaire who financed the trip falls in love with the captain of the ship.
