The British ship "RN/MS Mount Kyle" is torpedoed by a German U-boat in the last few days of WWII with Murphy (Peter O'Tool), an Irish crewman, escaping death and nursed back to health by Dr. Hayden, a Quaker missionary on the remote Orinoco River in South America. The only other survivor, the pilot of the Mount Kyle's damaged seaplane, is soon found and shot dead by the U-boat's captain. Murphy, with the help of Frenchman Lois Brezon, repairs the seaplane with the intention of sinking the U-boat as revenge for the needless deaths of his crewmates.
A major part of the movie consists of Murphy flying the WWII amphibious seaplane attempting to destroy a German U-Boat.
