    • Synopsis
    • January 16, 1942. Navy pilot Harold Dixon (Garret Dillahunt), Radioman Gene Aldrich (Jake Abel), and Bombardier Tony Pastula (Tom Felton) take off from the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise to search for submarines in the glistening waters of the South Pacific. The three men are strangers, assigned to spend an afternoon together in a single-engine torpedo bomber. They should be back on board in time for dinner.
      But instead of enjoying dinner on the Enterprise, the men find themselves fighting for their lives on a dark ocean in a tiny rubber raft, forced to ditch in the sea after they lose their way and run out of fuel. Their situation is worse than grim, as their plane sinks to the ocean floor, carrying with it all of their emergency supplies, leaving them with no first aid kit, no signalling device, no compass, no food, and no water.
      Thus begins an incredible odyssey that has become Navy legend. Dixon, Aldrich, and Pastula struggling to survive on the high seas, assaulted by sharks and storms, burning in the relentless sun, starving to death.
