Greece suffered numerous invasions of its territory during World War II. In this Greek film, based on a true story, the Greek Navy commissioned First Lieutenant Aslanogiou to take an old submarine and harass the departing Italian occupiers, ensuring that they keep to their side of the Adriatic. Against the odds, he manages to destroy three battleships in the Italian convoy. Even more incredibly, he survives the ensuing chase by Italian destroyers and is able to return safely to Greek waters.
