A biography of Carl Brashear, who struggled against institutionalised racism to become the first black graduate of the US Navy Dive School. Later in his career, Brashear is injured on duty and struggles again to overcome prejudice.
The sort of picture studios make in the hope of a bunch of awards (note the presence of previous winners and nominees), but which tends to fall off the radar if not done amazingly well. As is the case here.
