This film, which takes place during WWII, provides a personal and professional insight into the unsung Merchant Marines, who risked their lives to bring supplies to the fighting soldiers. The story begins with the Merchant Marines' tanker being torpedoed by the Nazis. The surviving men are saved after 11 days adrift at sea, and return home. But soon, the men are called back into action with a new assignment -- which forces them to confront the deadly Nazis once again. Strong ensemble acting that includes a performance Ruth Gordon fans should consider a must-see.
