Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy star in this epic love story about a British spy who, while being held captive by Somalia jihadists, is able to survive days of torture by focusing on the memory of a beautiful oceanographer with whom he fell in love and met a year ago.

Check out the trailer for "Submergence," which is based on the acclaimed novel by author J.M. Ledgard and is also the latest film from 72-year-old German director Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, Paris Texas).

The film, which premiered back in September at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, appears to be a suspenseful romantic tale as told through the memories of the two protagonists, both of whom have taken on dangerous jobs and presently find themselves in precarious situations.

"Submergence" is currently scheduled to arrive in the U.S. on April 13th and also in the U.K. on May 18th.

synopsis:
Submergence is a love story that takes us into the extremely different worlds of our two protagonists, Danielle Flinders (Alicia Vikander) and James More (James McAvoy). They meet by chance in a remote hotel in Normandy where they both prepare for a dangerous mission. They fall in love almost against their will, but soon recognize in each other the love of their lives. When they have to separate, we find out that James works for the British Secret Service. He's involved in a mission in Somalia to track down a source for suicide bombers infiltrating Europe.

Danielle "Danny" Flinders is a bio-mathematician working on a deep sea diving project to support her theory about the origin of life on our planet. Soon, they are worlds apart. James is taken hostage by Jihadist fighters and has no way of contacting Danny, and she has to go down to the bottom of the ocean in her submersible, not even knowing if James is still alive...
