Adventure thriller with modern day piracy on the high seas
During the chaotic last days of World War II, two SS officers use great ingenuity to desert the German army and sail with two dozen stolen tanks to a South American republic. Decades later the same regime, facing a mortal threat, hires a British shipping executive and a former British army captain to perform a daring act of maritime piracy. As the two young Englishmen ally with the elderly SS men, the present mirrors the past - and a remarkable crime on the high seas races to an explosive conclusion.
