The crew of HM Submarine Trojan locate an electrically operated mine which they cannot avoid. There is a tremendous explosion and the ship plunges to the sea bed. Emergency signals are sent and the Captain assembles the survivors to create an escape plan. Some can escape but others will have to wait for the rescuers to arrive. Those left must battle with fear and illness whilst the rescue team attempts to raise the vessel. To make matters worse, there is a storm brewing.
