James Caan and Robert Sean Leonard turn in top-notch performances in this true life story of the events surrounding the fatal explosion aboard the USS Iowa battleship in 1989.
Was it an accident, a case of negligence, or a deliberate act of sabotage?
When the deaths of 47 sailors on an ill-fated training exercise are blamed on a single despondent crew member, the ship's hardened Captain (Caan) supports the Navy's official position in order to save face.
But a skeptical Lieutenant (Leonard) with a different theory risks his own reputation - and his career - to discover the truth behind the tragedy. -- (C) 20th Century Fox, 2001, Canada/USA.
