This movie tells the story of Orzel (Eagle), one of the few Polish subs which in September 1939 managed to break out of Danzig and reach Tallin. There she was interned, but escaped and reached England. Orzel then became part of Polish naval forces in the West, and sank German troop transports during first stage of the invasion of Norway.
