"We are assembled on a kind of latter day Ark which in itself is a symbol which would have delighted St. John. We shall be voyaging to Patmos on the sea of possibility from which life emerged." -- His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew

This film follows the first ever ship borne symposium that traveled the Aegean Sea, culminating on the island of Patmos where St. John wrote the Book of Revelation 1900 years ago. It was on this island that St. John urged Humankind to "not hurt the Earth, neither the Seas." With his words in mind, the voyage brings more than 200 scientists, religious leaders from many faiths, environmentalists, policy makers and artists together to identify the degeneration of the world's waters as a new apocalypse confronting the planet. The event is an important step to finding common ground among religious and scientific leaders who share similar concerns about the environment--but whose historical antagonism has often blocked collaboration.

"The work which lies ahead for all those who love life is to translate this world community, which exists as an object under threat more and more, into a subject of promise and hope." -- His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
