With rough parallels to incidents in the late 1950s, this Cold War thriller pits the United States and the Soviet Union in a hunt for sophisticated military technology in the Arctic. The U.S.S. Tigerfish races to the Arctic to retrieve a satellite capsule and rescue stranded British civilians at a floating weather station. Saboteurs and spies as well as a standoff with the Soviets threaten the mission.
