A team of Navy S.E.A.L.s are sent to destroy a disabled submarine so it will not fall into the wrong hands. They complete their mission, but are captured before they can return to their base. The U.S. government will not mount a rescue mission to free the soldiers, so their adolescent children take over. The kids find a way to venture into the foreign country and then must overcome many obstacles.
