The Submarine Kid follows Spencer King (Finn Wittrock), a U.S. Marine who has just returned home from his third tour after a difficult wartime experience. He struggles to acclimate himself back into civilian life with his family, friends, and his girlfriend, while he also deals with being haunted by an event from the battlefield. However, when he meets a mysterious woman (Emilie de Ravin) who fully captivates him, they escape into an entrancing relationship. His bond with this woman provides Spencer a new focus in which he can withdraw, creating a destructive situation from which only Spencer can save himself.
The Submarine Kid also marks the feature directing debut of Eric Bilitch, who had previously written and directed episodes of Professional Friend.
