1944: The first recovered Nazi glide bomb has arrived in Ottawa. Scientists Richard Rettie and W.C. Wilkinson are given a daunting task — decode the bomb and end the carnage at sea.
These new radio-guided bombs are dropped from planes and remotely controlled once they hit the water. A Canadian ship, the HMCS Athabaskan, was one of the first to be attacked by this new weapon. Rettie and Wilkinson need to find a way to stop the bombs, and they need to do it fast.
