According to Roberts, this film presents cave diving in an unconventional light which nobody has ever witnessed. He says, "47 Meters Down Uncaged is very different from the first one. These four girls – two step-sisters and two friends – basically take a day by a lake in Mexico. One of the sisters is the daughter of an archaeologist working on this underwater mine city, mapping it out, and these girls all have basic dive skills, so they decide to go down to look at the first entrance. And then the tunnel collapses and they're trapped."

He added detailing more about the deadly vibe the film has by saying, "They are not alone in there! So there's claustrophobia, plus sharks! It's pretty scary."
