When an American vessel is torpedoed during World War II, eight survivors find refuge in a tiny lifeboat. Hopelessly short on food and water, their situation is further complicated when they rescue a crew member from the very submarine that sank their ship. Given the helm because he is the most capable sailor aboard, the passengers wonder if he is a savior steering them towards rescue, or their sworn enemy, delivering them into the arms of his fellow Nazis.
