A narrative version that will be told through the eyes of 11-year-old Hunter Scott. Scott, inspired in 1996 by the based-in-fact recollection of the ship's demise in "Jaws," set out to exonerate the vessel's captain, Charles McVay. Sunk by Japanese torpedoes in 1945, the Indianapolis' crew was left for days to fend against starvation, hypothermia and some of the worst shark attacks in history. Of the nearly 900 men that survived the torpedoes, only about 300 survived what followed.
