Y1-Silence of the Deep

14.09.1943: The legendary Submarine "Y1 - L. Katsonis" sank north of the island of Skiathos by the German submarine chaser UJ 2101. The narration through the book of XO Elias Tsoukalas who escapes capture and swims for 9 hours to the coast, secret documents and crew members' diaries are unfolding the human stories that are woven around the submarine. 75 years later, with the support of the Hellenic Navy, we search for the submarine, sunk at 253m depth and film the wreck for the very first time.
