In 1941, Hitler's war machine seems unstoppable. The Germans invade the Soviet Union, and the situation looks dire. To prevent further losses, the Allies are forced to help. Convoys of civilian cargo ships are filled to the brim with war material begins the perilous journey to Murmansk and Arkhangelsk.
35 ships set off on what is supposed to be the safest convoy, but due to catastrophic mistakes by British intelligence the journey turns deadly for the men and ships. Caught at sea without defense or war experience, civilian sailors come face to face with the German superior force in the brutal artic sea. Only 12 ships made it to destination.
CONVOY (WORKING TITLE) is inspired by one of the biggest dramas that unfolded at sea during World War 2.
