Soviet submarine captain disappears with his vessel from a training exercise. He tells the Soviets he is defecting. The Soviets tell the Americans he is going to launch missiles on the US.

Trivia: The Alfa-class submarine Konovalov commanded by Captain Tupolev is named after Soviet Rear Admiral Vladimir Konovalov. In March 1945, he sunk the German luxury liner Goya in the Baltic Sea on its way to Kiel, killing 6220 East Prussian refugees out of 6385.
