Dueling interpretations of the post-Cold War world clash aboard the U.S. Navy nuclear submarine the U.S.S. Alabama. Disagreement between a battle-hardened commanding officer and academically trained XO over truncated radio messages leads to chaos. Attacks by a Russian submarine heightens the stakes of their onboard battle.
