Synopsis

The "Portland," a US Navy nuclear submarine, sets off on a two-week training and patrol mission in the Arctic with a small scientific team on board. It begins as a standard mission, until a deadly collision with another sub leaves the "Portland" crippled at the bottom of the sea, 300 feet below crush depth. With the crew trapped and precious air running out, the three scientists must take the helm and find a way to the surface.
