In year 1980 American nuclear aircraft carrier USS Nimitz meets some strange phenomena in the middle of Pacific. After crossing it they find themselves in what seems to be the past - they can’t contact their base, they can’t detect any radars and all the radio stations seems to play old fashioned music. Soon they discover that they have moved in time to year 1941, just before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. They captain of USS Nimitz has a tough decision to make - should they change the course of events or should they just stay away and watch the port attacked.

Interesting movie showing what dillemas the time travel would raise. Good cast, interesting plot and impressive scenes aboard the ship.
