Storyline

Amy, her husband James and their baby Sarah travel to Mexico to sail in the yacht of their reckless friend Dan with their common friends Zach and Lauren and celebrate the thirtieth birthday of Zach. They are introduced to Dan's girlfriend Michelle and they drink and recall moments of their past while navigating. Miles away from the shore, Michelle suggest to stop the yacht and swim in the calm water. Amy stays in the boat since she has a childhood trauma with ocean and Dan stays with her. Later, the irresponsible Dan pushes Amy overboard, falling with her in a prank. Once in the water, the group realizes that Dan forgot to put the embarkation ladder and the freeboard makes impossible to climb to the main deck of the yacht. With the baby alone in the boat and stranded in the open sea, they panic and their desperation lead them to a tragic fight for survival. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Don't let IMDb ratings keep you from watching this one
13 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was entertained from start to finish. Had I come to IMDb and seen the rating of 5 I might have skipped it, but I saw the movie before I came here- lesson learned and advice to others. It's fast paced and there is always something happening. I really was not bored at all during any part of the movie. There are many things I can criticize about this movie, and I can understand the points other posters have made, but the bottom line is that it's just a movie. It's how I passed a couple of hours this Sunday night and that's all. When I want real excitement all I have to do is open the paper and read about all the crazy things happening in the world. So, I enjoyed it and I recommend it to others who like these kinds of movies.
