The story behind the tragic sinking of the cruise ship Costa Concordia tells of mistakes and human failures that made the ship one of the largest wrecks since the Titanic.
Using innovative filming techniques, including micro-drones and underwater film, the tragic story is told from beginning to end. The film was made possible through the producers' unparalleled access to survivors, rescue units and the highest Italian coast guard and fire brigade authorities as well as the islanders who rescued the survivors so they could live to tell their stories. But the whole story of the Costa Concordia goes far beyond the drama of the 13th January 2012, or even the historic salvage underway, it is also about millions of dollars at stake, for the engineers working on the historic salvage, for the cruise industry that must address serious lapses in sea safety, and for the families who will never be the same since they set foot on the Costa Concordia that fateful night.
