Carl Brashear (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), an Afro-American recruit with the U.S. Navy, discovers his vocation in life when he is transferred to an elite training school for deep-sea divers. Yet despite the recent abolition of segregation, Carl still suffers from the lingering racism it has left in its wake; finding himself rejected by many of his fellow trainees, victimized by the school's bigoted commanding officer Mr Pappy (Hal Holbrook), and pushed to breaking point by chief training officer Billy Sunday (Robert De Niro). Nevertheless, Carl refuses to quit and soon he and Sunday establish a mutual respect which will see them through their many subsequent trials.

Carl Brashear lets nothing stand in his way. The son of a Kentucky sharecropper, Carl leaves home for what he expects would be a better life. "Never quit... be the best," his father told him, and Carl takes those words to heart. He joins the newly integrated Navy and applies to become a navy diver in the elite division used for search and rescue. Carl's training officer, Billy Sunday wants no part of Carl or his ambitions. He drives Carl beyond the level of normal endurance in an attempt to get him to falter and quit. Over time, the two men establish a respect that will ultimately see them battling alongside each other as they must fight to protect their honour and their lives.
