1588; the Spanish Armada is sent to the British Isles with one purpose: to overthrow Queen Elizabeth I. But this misson would fail; the fleet obliterated by the merciless storms of the Atlantic Ocean without trace. This Tile FIlms docudrama investigates a mysterious shipwreck discovered off the coast of Donegal. Could this be a remnant of the doomed fleet?

Narrated by well-known Irish actor and Gaeilgeoir, Lochlann Ó Mearáin, this hour long documentary sees Tile Films join a team of experts over a four year period as they study this lost ship to unlock its secrets and discover the story behind the wreck.
