Just before the end of the second world war, the Japanese navy created a plan to attack the Panama Canal using kamikaze aircraft launched from a submarine. Sen Toku- The Seach for Japan's Ghost Fleet documents the search for the sunken submarine and explores the technology and reasoning behind creating a aircraft carrying submarine. Aurora's most challenging and ambitious package to date, Sen Toku came to life in 3D animation, as there is no physical evidence left of the submarine except for plans and archival photographs.
