Synopsis:
Communist missile-launching subs are hidden in the ocean off U.S. shores in the event a war should erupt. Lieutenant Commander Perry Barra knows that it is useless for the U.S. government to denounce this and so sends frogmen to clog up a submarine and force it to surface. Having been revealed the Communist captain promises retribution, while the Lieutenant hopes that one day they'll be embarassed enough to not try it again.
