Some unknown maniac is threatening a navigation company to blow up one of its luxury transatlantics, the "Britannic", now in high sea with 1200 passengers. He is asking for a £500,000 ransom, otherwise the 7 bombs aboard will explode. An experienced anti-bomb squad is sent to the "Britannic", but although all the bombs are located, a very high skill level will be necessary to dismantle them. Perhaps that task is impossible...

The film took its inspiration from an incident which occurred in 1972 when a man claimed he had planted a bomb on board the QE2 and demanded a ransom. Cunard were prepared to pay the ransom, but the British Government decided instead to send in soldiers of the Special Boat Service who parachuted into the North Atlantic 1000 miles from the UK and boarded the QE2 to search for the device. The threat turned out to be a hoax and the FBI later caught the culprit. See more
