Jede Sekunde zählt - The Guardian

Ben Randall ist einer der erfahrensten Rettungsschwimmer der US-amerikanischen Küstenwache und hat bereits mehrere hundert Menschen gerettet. Doch bei einem schweren Unfall auf hoher See muss er hilflos mit ansehen, wie alle seine Kameraden ums Leben kommen. Kurz darauf wird Ben an die Militärakademie versetzt, um junge Rettungsschwimmer auszubilden. Dabei zeichnet er sich durch besonders harte und neuartige Trainingsmethoden aus, die den Anwärtern klarmachen soll, wie sich ein Einsatz im Ernstfall anfühlt. Ein besonders hartes Training macht er mit dem Ausnahmeathleten Jake Fischer, der sich dadurch zu einem hervorragenden Rettungsschwimmer entwickelt. Jake besteht die Abschlussprüfung und wird zur Küstenwache von Kodiak, Alaska versetzt, wo auch Ben stationiert ist, nachdem er sich wieder einsatzbereit erklärt hat.

Pourtant, il reste hanté par la mort de ses coéquipiers...Parmi ses élèves, Randall remarque un jeune champion de natation insolent et frimeur, Jake Fischer. Il reconnaît aussitôt le potentiel du jeune homme et tente de lui inculquer tout ce qui pourrait faire de lui un grand sauveteur. Randall espère aussi lui épargner les erreurs qu'il a lui-même commises.Son diplôme obtenu, Jake suit Randall à Kodiak, en Alaska, où ils affrontent l'une des pires zones maritimes du globe, la mer de Bering. Lors de sa première opération de secours, Jake va véritablement découvrir tout ce que sa mission implique...
