The needless tragedy of the torpedo of passenger Lisitania by a German U-boat off the southern coast of Ireland in 1915 altered the course of the First World War. The high casualty number pulled the previously unaligned US military into the war. This enthralling documentary focuses on eight individual passengers in those desperate last 18 minutes onboard; from the kitchens to the first class cabins, it is a story of heroism, sacrifice, luck and misfortune.
