English Summary:

Baltic Storm is a 2003 film written and directed by Reuben Leder about the 1994 MS Estonia disaster. Based on the book Die Estonia: Tragödie eines Schiffsuntergangs by German journalist Jutta Rabe, the film focuses on the supposed transport of defense materials by the Swedish Armed Forces, and alleged cover-up of the true cause of the disaster.

The plot portrays the Swedish government as being responsible for using the ship to covertly transport Russian high-tech components to the United States. The story is uncovered by a young female journalist, not unlike Rabe herself. According to Rabe, divers hired by the Swedish government (signing contracts swearing lifetime secrecy) spent hours breaking into cabins frantically searching for a black attaché case carried by a Russian space technology dealer, Aleksandr Voronin (who died 2002). She highlighted US interest in various Soviet technology, including nuclear-powered satellites. She also suggested that panic about the stability of some form of nuclear device is the most likely reason behind the initial Swedish government suggestion of burying the wreck in concrete, a highly unusual proposal for a wreck, reminiscent of Chernobyl's sarcophagus

 

Hungarian Summary:

Julia Reuter, egy német televízió oknyomozó riportere egy fegyvercsempész-hálózat nyomára bukkan. A nyomok Észtországba vezetnek, ahol Julia 1994. szemptember 27-én csak percekkel kési le az Estonia komphajót, amelyre informátorai szerint két csúcstechnológiás fegyverrel megpakolt teherautó is felhajtott. Eközben egy Svéd ügyvéd, Erik Westermark, 10 éves fiával egy néhány napos vitorlástúráról indul haza az Estonián. A komphajó azonban soha nem fut be Stocholmba - az éjszaka közepén váratlanul elsüllyed... Erik Westermark egyike a túlélőknek, de fiának nyoma veszett. Amikor a férfi találkozik a katasztrófáról tudósító Julia-val,mindketten úgy gondolják,hogy a vizsgálóbizottság valamit el akar tusolni a nyilvánosság elől. Egy egykori NDK-s titkosügynöknőtől és a KGB egy volt ügynökétől az újságírónő és az ügyvéd azt az információt kapja, hogy az Estonia katasztrófájának köze lehet a fegyvercsempészethek...
