Matt Hendricks and Linda Christian are two soldiers who are on a submarine when it is infiltrated by terrorists, trapping them inside. The two then learn of a plot to use a chemical weapon from the submarine on America. Now it's up to them to save the day.
After the film was completed, producer Andrew Stevens deemed it too inept to be released. Screenwriter Steve Latshaw was brought in to make the film at least half-competent, while Jim Wynorski was hired to direct some new scenes (about 40 minutes of footage in three days) and insert stock footage (mostly from Fred Olen Ray's Die Hard rip-off Counter Measures with Michael Dudikoff from which it became a remake of) where appropriate.
