Part straight drama and part documentary, The Treasure of the Wrecked Vessel takes place off the shores of the Black Sea. The film is ostensibly a dramatization of the work of EPRON, a Russian anagram that translates roughly as "Soviet Ship Salvaging Trust." Panov, an ex-thief now working as an EPRON diver, is busily engaged in recovering a ship sunk 20 years earlier. An old cronie suggests that Panov strip the vessel of its wealth and then head to parts unknown. He almost agrees, but is redeemed through the love of his sweetheart Tanya. An actor billed only as Batalov delivers a superlative performance as the vacillating but ultimately noble hero.
