'The Kursk is based on the events surrounding the sinking of the Russian nuclear submarine that resulted in the deaths of all 118 Russian submariners aboard. Using real testimonies and documentary materials, The Kursk follows the submariners' final moments on board, the rescuers' urgent mission and the relatives' desperate vigil on shore.'
