When young Kevin inherits his dead uncle’s boat, he and five of his friends take it out for a weekend cruise to Catalina Island.  But the carefree teens are quickly hurled into a blind panic when the boat’s engine fails on the open water, setting off a chain of strange and increasingly terrifying events.  Lost at sea, the group struggles to survive an unseen enemy, only to be overcome by an insidious evil at every turn.  Each one is forced to face the terror of the one thing they fear most in the world, and each must answer to a fate of his own making.
