High-seas survival adventure in a lifeboat, based on a true story and a controversial naval murder trial. As a disabled cruise ship is evacuated, one of its lifeboats is hopelessly lost at sea -- in the path of an oncoming storm. A junior officer, acting as captain, faces a moral dilemma when he realizes there are too many people in the boat to survive the storm: he must play God and decide who goes overboard to die, in order to save the majority of passengers.
