Opening credits prologue: In 1622, the Atocha, a Spanish ship, was lost at sea off the Florida keys, carrying two hundred and sixty people to their deaths and with them a legendary fortune in treasure.
Over three centuries later, Mel Fisher led his family on a search for the Atocha. His dream of adventure, glory and gold would challenge the laws of this country and change their lives forever.
I loved this movie. It is really well cast with Cliff Robertson playing the real Mel Fisher. The underwater scenes for television are terrific. I love the music and the boat tipping over sequence is great. Also great is a speech Mel makes about the liberties we have in America which we can't have taken away from us. Go Mel, I agree with you and think you are a great American.
