Experienced captain in charge of newest Russian submarine is obviously trying to defect to United States.

Based on the Tom Clancy novel story of Russian submarine commander who has planned to defect to USA. But the submarine isn’t just any sub - it’s the new and experimental model with super quite propulsion that neither side of the Cold War could easily detect. The hunt begins - Russians wants to stop the captain and the Americans are trying to figure out what actually is happening.

The movie isn’t even close to the level of the novel (for obvious reasons they couldn’t simulate the whole conflict including many American and Russian ships, subs and airplanes), it concentrates on the main plot only, the escape of Ramius. Of course it doesn’t mean that the movie is in any way faulty - it is highly entertaining and by all means worth watching.

The interesting thing is that the novel was actually inspired by real event - in 1960s Russian destroyer commander (also a new model) who was unhappy with the way Soviet Union was developing and decided to take action. The main differences are that he wasn’t actually wanted to defect to the other side and that he was communist who just wanted the country to be reformed.
