This film is based on a true story, an accident that happened to a Russian submarine named K-141 Kursk that happened in 2000.
This submarine sank at the bottom of the Barents Sea during a naval exercise after an explosion inside the ship.
This incident resulted in 118 sailors dying. There were 23 sailors who managed to save themselves and were desperately waiting for help to arrive while their oxygen reserves were running low. At that time, the Russian government refused help from other countries.
This unwise decision received a strong response from the victims’ families who demanded that the government move quickly to find the sunken ship. Finally, five days later after the shipwreck, Russia agreed to help from Britain and Norway to evacuate.
