Full Synopsis

Following her husband Arthur’s mysterious death, Rachel Baxley packs up her life as a State Department wife in Hong Kong and boards a freighter along with her husband’s casket bound for the U.S. She begins to regret this decision when she meets one of the crew members, a handsome rogue named Jake Fontaine – who has smuggled his liquor above in Arthur’s coffin!

Suddenly, a typhoon hits and the freighter breaks apart. Hours later, Rachel finds herself clinging to a piece of wreckage with the only other survivor…a certain drunken sailor named Jake.

Marooned on a desert island with Jake, Rachel is determined to be rescued and following an ill-fated attempt to sail off the island, she becomes feverish. Jake vows to quit drinking if she survives and lovingly ministers to her. As she recovers, Rachel sees him in a new light…and they fall in love. Shortly thereafter, Jake comes to suspect that Rachel’s “late” husband Arthur might not be dead at all. The man pictured in Rachel’s locket is not the man he saw in the coffin; a second look reveals that it is stuffed with heroin packets.

Rachel is stunned when Arthur arrives on the island with his heroin smuggling partners. Using Rachel as a hostage, they force Jake to help them salvage Arthur’s casket from the wreck. In the ensuing chaos, Jake overcomes each of the smugglers and heroically rescues his new love, Rachel.
