And we want you to know

that this has nothing,

nothing at all,

to do with your performance,

which is exemplary, by the way.

Look, the business has changed.

Marine salvage has changed.

We don't need

a submarine pilot anymore.

We don't even need a sub.

Now, you've never been on contract,

so redundancy,

well, that's out of the question.

But I spoke to Bob Toris personally

and he has insisted

that Agora make sure

that there's something for you.

And I'm pleased to say

that we can offer you

a settlement of 8,640.

I mean, have you got a pension?

Like a private pension?

I've been with Agora for 11 years.

I've been working

on submarines for nearly 30.

I lost my family to this job.

They... They'd like you

to clear your desk.

Today.

And before your last job,

you were in the navy for 15 years?

Aye.

Why did you leave?

I disagreed with someone.

Fuck-shit.

Yeah. That's some kind

of fuck-shit, all right.

Kurston, you okay?

What?

You look rough.

Yeah, no, I'm...

They've put me on these tablets.

Antidepressants.

Said... they'll balance me out.

You all right drinking, then?

It helps.

I can't believe

those bastards fired you.

I can't believe it.

It's a joke.

I mean, when they fired Kurston, okay,

he fat useless fuck.

No offense, man. No offense.

Yeah, yeah, suck my arse.

But fire man like you, fuck-shit.

They want me to flip burgers.

Fuckers.

When I was young,

all I think about was sex.

Now I think only money.

You're dog shit in this wonderful world

without money, my friends.

I saw Martin yesterday. My boy.

He's 12 now.

Saw him across the road, like.

Posh school. Nice house.

My own son being brought up by some

rich fuck I've never even met.

How's Chrissy? How she look?

Good. She looks good.

We don't have to take this shit.

We don't have to take this shit.

What the fuck you talk about?

I think I know a way

to... not be like this.

I know a way to get money.

Their fucking money.

But I can't do it, see.

I've not got the skill.

It needs you, Robinson.

It needs a man like you.

You could do it.

Just before Agora fired me last year,

I went out with them to the Black Sea.

We found something.

You're late. And you look like shit.

Where the fuck is Kurston?

He called me this morning.

He's not coming.

What do you mean, he's not coming?

He's sick.

He's sick?

God damn it. Well,

he'd better have cancer.

All right, listen to me.

Do exactly as I say.

Nod, be nice, don't be a fucking idiot.

Don't elaborate unless he asks.

Don't say anything

that you don't have to, okay?

Don't ask him his name.

And please, please, whatever you do,

do not ask him how much

he's going to invest in this.

Sir, this is Robinson,

the man I told you about.

What's your name and how much

are you going to invest in this?

So, in 1941,

Nazi Germany came close

to total financial collapse.

At that time, the Soviets were neutral,

but Stalin was terrified

that Germany was going to invade,

so Hitler used this and demanded

a loan from Russia.

80 million reichsmark in gold.

Now, nobody knows what happens next

because weeks later,

Hitler broke the nonaggression

pact and invaded Russia.

Four years of war, 20 million dead.

But in the '50s there's rumors

that started to circulate

in the highest ranks of the Politburo

that Stalin had complied

with the request,

that Hitler had sent a U-boat,

Stalin had stuffed it with two tons

of gold and sent it on its way.

But the gold never arrived,

and Hitler invaded.

- So...

- So everybody forgets about it.

But in the '80s,

an oceanic research institute
