During World War II the passenger liner "Goliath" is sunk by a German submarine. Portions of the ship's hull remain airtight, and some of the passengers and crew survive.

When I see movies like this, I want to know what happened later...how did the people react to changes in the world after 40 years. I was curious about how they would find jobs, make their way in a new society. I did agree with the comments on weaknesses of the film...but the premise was fascinating.
