At a top secret facility on Alaska's North Shore, one of the darkest secrets of the Cold War remains in storage. A substance recovered from a meteor, it has the same properties of anti-matter. Called ICE-10, it's a dooms day substance that if released would start a chain reaction destroying the world. When the material accidentally escapes, an entire town in Northern Canada is wiped out. With the destruction of the town and thousands of lives lost, the US government decides that this material has to be destroyed for the sake of mankind. The entire inventory of ICE-10 will be shipped on special container stored on board a super tanker to the deepest underwater trench in the world. As the Super Tanker heads towards the Marianas Trench, the ship starts having problems remaining stable in the water because of the ICE 10's electromagnetic effect on electronic equipment. Now, the only way to save the world is for a special team to board the vessel, stop it, and sink the ship before anymore material is released.
