The movie currently being shot in Fiji is based on the true story of Tami Oldham, who, after being knocked unconscious by the largest hurricane in the history of the Pacific Ocean, awakens to find her fiance Richard Sharp badly injured, their boat in ruins and no means of communication or navigation.

Producer Ralph Winter has been in the country over the last two months to finalize logistics before production starts.
