What do you do when your town is dying because the ocean you depend on is dying?

GALILEE is set in a small fishing and tourism town on the Great Barrier Reef, where tempers and the ocean are both heating up amid plans for a giant new coal mine. As coral bleaches deathly white across the Reef, a young marine scientist fights to save the seas - but first, she has to save her mother's hair salon business from a dangerous land shark.
