Two Finnish filmmakers and a team of international divers go in search of a WWII German U-boat and attempt to uncover the facts of a 60-year mystery. The U-479 went missing in November 1944, in the Gulf of Finland. Soviet sources claimed that their submarine, the Lembit sunk the boat, but the official story has never been considered a satisfactory explanation so the filmmakers decide to do some digging of their own.
The second episode begins with the tragic story of the biggest maritime disaster in history; the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, while the Swedes dive down to the wreck Steuben in the Baltic Sea. In the former East Germany there is a chance to explore a Russian submarine, while the adventures and diving around Estonia continues, taking in the sights of Hiiumaa Island and taking a trip to old Soviet bunkers.
