Kelly Brook and Billy Zane are a wealthy couple on a yachting trip in the Caribbean. Disaster hits when the boat catches fire and everyone must abandon ship. It turns out there are only three survivors from this maritime accident — Brook, Zane and handsome crewman Juan Pablo Di Pace, who all end up on an isolated island together. Along with having to deal with all that pesky survival stuff of finding food, water, shelter and making fire, other problems arise. A tense love triangle develops between the three. Di Pace is smitten with Brook, Zane becomes outrageously jealous and Brook is confusingly torn between these two men.
One of their crew is the handsome Manuel Juan Pablo Di Pace , who is cursed by his angry ex-girlfriend as he prepares to leave on the yacht. He is clearly bothered and has a difficult time fulfilling requests for the crew and guests. After the captain confronts him, Manuel quits and throws down a rag as he storms out of the galley. The rag lands on a gas flame and causes the entire yacht to catch fire.
