30th August - 31st August
Based on the gripping true events of the K-141 Kursk submarine disaster and the subsequent governmental negligence that followed. After a Russian missile test backfires, the Kursk submarine erupts in flame killing most of the men onboard and sending the trapped survivors to the bottom of sea.
Ignoring advice, the Russian government refuses the help of the international naval community, as the sailors fight for survival beneath the waves and their families desperately battle political obstacles and impossible odds in an attempt to save them.
