On 22 October 2010 HMS Astute, the Royal Navy’s largest and most modern nuclear-powered submarine ran aground off the Scottish Isle of Skye. Shortly beforehand, the commander had proudly told the BBC about the fully-electronic navigation system.– In badly-lit, wobbly and grainy takes and with brief intertitles, the film recounts the events of two years ago, feeling its way into the depths of the human psyche. To this day the former commander has not spoken about the incident.
