The plot of the film revolves around a young submariner who has a unique hearing. He works as an acoustics and can recognize any sound. The fate of many people depends on his ability, and a mistake threatens the life of the entire crew of the submarine. Trying to regain the confidence of his comrades, he conducts his own investigation of military provocation. It put the whole world at risk of a nuclear apocalypse. Now the elite combat team has to do everything possible to prevent a world war. They need to do the almost impossible, since the main command order is not subject to cancellation.

Goofs

In the introduction sequence at around 17 min, an helicopter takes off from a frigate. The submarine then rises to the surface and the commander shoots the helicopter with a rocket launcher. But the frigate has apparently disappeared and we don't see it anymore, whereas it should still be around, and a potential threat to the submarine. See more »

This movie was amazing ! It was fast paced and the twists were incredible. One thing I couldn't stop talking about with my Friends was the soundtrack. It made me feel like I was in the movie. This movie is so worth watching!! First I thought that a french movie couldn't be that great but I'm impressed and clearly satisfied. Everybody should see it once to see what french cinema can show.
