Story intro

The film begins with Tami awakening on the sailing yacht Hazaña after being unconscious. She searches the crippled yacht in hopes of finding her fiancé Richard and realizes he has been swept overboard in a catastrophic hurricane. Tami screams in anguish and it is revealed that she is all alone, with no ships or land in sight. Five months before the hurricane, Tami arrives in Tahiti on board the schooner Sofia and meets Richard Sharp, a British sailor. Richard invites Tami for dinner aboard his boat Mayaluga. During dinner, Richard reveals that he has experienced hallucinations after days at sea. Stranded on the Hazaña, Tami finds that all electronic devices have been ruined by water damage, preventing her from making distress calls. She spots the lost dinghy with Richard clinging to it and tries to sail the ship towards him but to no avail. After falling off the yacht and almost drowning, she has no choice but to make repairs to the ship in order to get it moving. She makes a makeshift sail using a broken pole and a storm jib (a triangular sail), and a pump to prevent the cabin from flooding, then makes her way toward Richard. After saving him, Tami realizes that Richard has broken ribs and a shattered right shin. While searching for food supplies, she discovers that she has a severe head injury and stitches the wound with a sail needle and thread. Shortly before they embarked on the ill-fated trip, Tami and Richard bumped into Peter and Christine Crompton, owners of the Hazaña, a luxury Trintella 44 yacht. The Cromptons offered Richard $10,000 and a return first-class ticket back to Tahiti to help them sail Hazaña to San Diego, California. Richard accepted the offer, with a condition that Tami come along. He proposed to Tami with a handmade ring, which she accepted.
