Synopsis

Nicolas Cage stars in this wartime action drama directed by Mario Van Peebles. After delivering parts for the atomic bomb that would later be dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, the naval cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine while patrolling the Philippine Sea. Left with no option but to abandon ship, Captain Charles McVay (Cage) and hundreds of his crew are left stranded in open seas with no food or water. Enduring extreme hunger and thirst for days, things soon go from bad to worse as a group of sharks begin to prey on the men as they sit helplessly awaiting rescue.
