Synopsis

German made-for-TV drama which tells the story of the sinking of passenger ship the Gustloff in the final year of WWII. Kai Wiesinger plays Hellmut Kehding, captain of the ill-fated ship evacuating soldiers and German civilians from Danzig in January 1945. Not long after leaving the harbour, the Gustoff was shelled by torpedoes from a Soviet submarine and sank within an hour, taking the lives of over 9,000 people, most of whom were women and children.
