       Additional Information  
      During World War II, an allied ship delivering supplies is attacked. The ship sinks to the ocean floor, trapping five crew members (three men and two women) in the wreckage, along with most of their cargo. As the survivors--and years later, their children--eke out a bizarre existence deep under the sea, an alien space ship is slowly approaching Earth. Piloted by a crew slowly going mad from decades in space, the ship is delivering hibernating colonists to a new world, one with enough water to support their aquatic nature.
