Under the watchful eyes of Father Silvano Bentivoglio (Carmen Argenziano) and Dr. Vittoria Vetra (Ayelet Zurer), the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) initiates the Large Hadron Collider and creates three vials of antimatter particles larger than any that have ever been produced before. Almost immediately, Father Silvano is killed and one of the vials of antimatter goes missing. At the same time, the Roman Catholic Church is mourning the sudden death of Pope Pius XVI in Rome and prepares for the papal conclave to elect the next Pope. The Camerlengo Patrick McKenna (Ewan McGregor) assumes temporary control of the Vatican. The Illuminati kidnap four of the 'preferiti' (the favourite cardinals to be elected pope) before the conclave enters seclusion and threaten to kill one candidate every hour and destroy all of Vatican City at midnight, using the missing vial of antimatter as a bomb. The Vatican summons symbologist Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) from Harvard University and Vittoria from CERN to help them save the four preferiti and locate the vial.

Le documentaire comprend des images de l'exploration sous-marine de l'épave, accompagnées d'images de synthèse reconstituant la bataille et le naufrage du navire jusqu'à son glissement et son immobilisation sur le flanc d'un volcan sous-marin, à plus de 4 700 mètres de fond. Le documentaire comporte également des scènes à bord du Bismarck, reconstituées sur l'USS North Carolina (navire américain désarmé de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, transformé en musée à Wilmington en Caroline du Nord) ainsi que les commentaires et les témoignages d'historiens et de 2 marins survivants du naufrage, embarqués à bord du bateau utilisé pour cette expédition. Celui-ci est le navire océanographique russe Akademik Mstislav Keldysh. Ce dernier, déjà utilisé par Cameron pour une plongée sur le Titanic, va refaire le trajet emprunté par le Bismarck 61 ans plus tôt, du port de Kiel en Allemagne jusqu'au lieu de son naufrage, en Atlantique nord à 650 km au nord-ouest de Brest.

A joint Anglo-American plot is devised to steal a highly advanced Soviet fighter aircraft (MiG-31, NATO code name "Firefox") which is capable of Mach 6, is invisible to radar, and carries weapons controlled by thought. Former United States Air Force Major Mitchell Gant (Eastwood), a Vietnam veteran and former POW, infiltrates the Soviet Union, aided by his ability to speak Russian (due to his having had a Russian mother) and a network of Jewish dissidents and sympathizers, three of whom are key scientists working on the fighter itself. His goal is to steal the Firefox and fly it back to friendly territory for analysis.
