The internationally renowned drama series Das Boot returns with a third season, as three thrilling and emotionally intense storylines show the cruelty and futility of war.
It is spring 1943 when Robert Ehrenberg (Franz Dinda) sails out once more on an impossible mission with a very young and unexperienced CO and crew.
Hunted by the revengeful British Commander Swinburne (Ray Stevenson), the crew of U-949 must have more than just one ace up their sleeves to defy death. Hagen Forster (Tom Wlaschiha) has been assigned a mission in Lisbon during which he meets Klaus Hoffmann (Rick Okon).
He is unofficially helping the US Navy to establish a connection to the Reich’s Navy via his father, Wilhelm Hoffmann (Ernst Stötzner), to end this war.
In Kiel, Wilhelm’s daughter Hannie (Luise Wolfram) is stuck in a loveless marriage and the boundaries of her status and a dangerous regime and subsequently plays with fire.
In German and English with English subtitles.
