Betti Carpman

On a beautiful summer day, Betti Carpman goes boating with her husband and father. Five months pregnant with her first child, she basks in the sun while the two men fish. Suddenly, in a violent turn of events, the idyllic afternoon turns into a nightmare. The boat hits a reef and Betti is thrown overboard. In an instant, the boat's propeller slashes her open from stomach to chest. The sudden accident leaves her fighting for two lives - her own and that of her unborn child.

Tere Duperrault Fassbender

Tere Duperrault was only eleven years old when her family took a fateful pleasure cruise off the coast of Florida. One night, the captain of the charter went on a rampage and sabatoged the ship. He killed Tere's entire family and left her for dead on a sinking ship in the black of night. Clinging to small raft, Tere survived without shelter, food or water for four long days. Plucked from the seas near death, she was the only witness to the captain's crime. Her miraculous survival was the murderer's downfall.
