An incredible true tale of espionage and engineering set at the height of the Cold War--a mix between The Hunt for Red October and Argo-- about how the CIA, the U.S. Navy, and America's most eccentric mogul spent six years and nearly a billion dollars to steal the nuclear-armed Soviet submarine K-129 after it had sunk to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean; all while the Russians were watching.
