Le sous-marin nucléaire lanceur d'engins russe K-141 Koursk (Курск en russe) appartenait à la classe Projet 949A "Antei" ("Oscar II" pour l'OTAN). Ce navire récent (il avait été lancé en décembre 1994) et très performant illustrait la résurrection des forces navales russes après les années de déliquescence qui ont suivi la fin du régime soviétique. Le 12 août 2000, le Koursk fait naufrage en mer de Barents alors qu'il participe à d'importantes manœuvres de la Flotte du Nord. Lors de ces manœuvres, deux explosions successives sont en effet enregistrées mais personne n'en identifie l'origine, personne ne sait encore que cela provient d'un sous-marin et que tout l'avant du Koursk (de l'étrave au massif) a été entièrement ravagé alors qu'il était en plongée. Le Koursk a coulé aussitôt et repose désormais par 90 mètres de fond seulement (le sous-marin mesure 154 mètres de long). À bord, 23 marins réfugiés à l'arrière du sous-marin se débattent pour survivre. Les graves avaries subies par le bâtiment ne leur permettent pas de communiquer avec la surface ni d'émettre le moindre signal de détresse, si ce n'est des coups de marteau sur la coque. À terre, les familles font face aux obstacles et aux lourdeurs bureaucratiques qui compromettent le sauvetage, et l'absence de toute information fiable rend l'attente insupportable. Les jours passent sans que les autorités soient capables de donner des informations précises, et les opérations de sauvetage tardent à débuter. Dans le même temps les propositions d'aide venant de l'étranger sont déclinées. Après plusieurs jours d'atermoiements, de tentatives ratées pour arrimer un sous-marin de sauvetage au Koursk, il faut se rendre à l'évidence: il n'y a plus aucune chance de retrouver de survivants parmi les 118 membres d'équipage. Ce sont des plongeurs norvégiens qui réussissent les premiers à pénétrer à bord. Ce lourd bilan fait du naufrage du Koursk l'une des pires catastrophes touchant un navire de guerre en temps de paix. L'attitude des autorités civiles et navales, ainsi que la lenteur du déclenchement des opérations de secours et leur caractère calamiteux (maintenant les familles dans l'angoisse pendant de nombreux jours) ont choqué l'opinion publique bien au-delà des frontières de la Russie.

An ambitious, up-and-coming reporter Nina Dunham has much success with her interview with underage video chat-room stripper Kyle. Kyle, a runaway, works in a whole "house" with other chat-room strippers under his boss, Harvey. However, the FBI wants her to reveal his address in order to shut down the whole website that hosts the web-rooms. Since she has paid him in order to make initial contact, she may have broken the law, making the police and her boss put pressure on her to cooperate. Nina wants to save him from the business, yet fears losing his trust in the process. Kyle reluctantly gives her the address, and somehow, Harvey is tipped off and the entire house flees. When Nina discovers this, she follows them to the motel where they're staying, and asks Kyle to leave with her. At first, Kyle is hopeful for the future and willing, but when Nina is hesitant to guarantee him safe haven in her home, he resists. Harvey watches the argument, then slaps Nina. The entire group of chat-room strippers leave and Nina drives away in tears.
