It's April, 1988, and tensions are high in the Persian Gulf. In an attempt to mend family fences, Admiral "Fighting" Joe Houghton, an old-salt sailor, visits his son's ship for his last taste of sea duty before retirement. His son, Josh, commands an Aegis missile cruiser - the most sophisticated fighting ship in the world. It's a clash of old ways versus new, when what begins as a limited defensive action backlashes, and results in a high-tech, gulf-wide battle for survival. Based on actual events.

Father/daughter version - first female commander of a combat vessel - also available.
