Originally broadcast in Great Britain as a television miniseries, this docudrama travels back to the fateful month of September 1942 and recreates a stunning series of events. With World War II at its peak, a German U-Boat torpedoes the RMS Laconia - sans the knowledge that it's transporting over 2000 passengers. There ensues a real-life tale of self-sacrifice, courage and heartbreaking tragedy. The huge international cast includes Franka Potente, Lindsay Duncan, Andrew Buchan and Ken Duken.
