In the early days of WWII, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by captain Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks) in his first command of a U.S. destroyer, crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while hotly pursued by wolf packs of Nazi U-boats.
Dear, Lord! Let your holy angel be with me. May the evil form they have no power over you. Into your hand, I commend myself, my body, and soul. Amen! Congratulations on your command. I will always be looking for you leaving. Even if I'm a thousand miles away. Hera's going to Greyhound. You will now out of a range of air cover for the next five days. Safe travels to England! How many crossings this is make? This is my first. I got some. Most like a U-boat. They strike the bomb to us. Fire! We have a kill. Distress Rockets, sir! We hits directly on the convoy. U-boat starts to sail. In 48 hours, we've lost seven ships and 50 souls. What you did yesterday gotta stick today. That'snough, not nearly enough. Fire, navy! Target's disappeared, sir. You're not gonna durvive the night. Here they come. What are we gonna do? We'll hell down from on high.
