October 22, 2010: the nuclear-powered submarine H.M.S Astute left the Edinburgh naval base on a personnel transfer mission.

This final mission would come to be considered one of the most disastrous episodes in British naval history.

Made mainly from images culled from the internet and press agencies, and punctuated by several title cards, An Archipelago ventures into the crossroads of silent film, experimental cinema and Hollywood storytelling.
