  • Deep on the bottom of the sea, some 3800 meters below, in the very seabed of the Atlantic Ocean lies the wreckage of a ship. It is the unmistakable figure of the "Titanic", once man's greatest mechanical achievement, now stripped of its former glory, paying the price of pride and hubris against God. Almost a century later, at the present time, intrigued by the unique stories of the Titanic's passengers, but most of all, of its abundant, yet, hidden riches, Brock Lovett, a modern treasure hunter and his well-equipped technical crew is digging for answers for the past three years, nevertheless, without any success. But when the news of his crusade reaches the ears of Rose Calvert, one of Titanic's few survivors, things will begin to clarify, as Rose begins to unfold her incredible, heartfelt and tragic story that intertwines the legend of the notorious "Heart of the Ocean", King Louis' XVI deep-blue diamond, with her true romance between classes with Jack Dawson, a young bohemian vagabond. Eventually, however, Rose's sad story will come to the unforeseeable events that shook the world and would inevitably teach a lesson in humility to both paupers and royalty.

  • Deep-sea explorer Brock Lovett has reached the most famous shipwreck of all - the Titanic. Emerging with a safe believed to contain a diamond called 'The Heart of the Ocean', he discovers the safe does not hold the diamond but a drawing of a beautiful woman wearing it. When Brock is later interviewed on TV, he shows the drawing to the cameras, and a 100-year-old woman named Rose Calvert living in Michigan recognizes the woman in the drawing - herself! On a visit to Brock's explorer ship over the wreck, Rose tells her story of the Titanic and its ill-fated voyage. Engaged to a would-be steel magnate, Caledon Hockley, she boards the Titanic's first-class suites with him and her mother in Southampton. Also boarding are Jack Dawson and his best friend Fabrizio De Rossi, after a lucky poker game wins them tickets in steerage.

Rose's mother and Caledon Hockley try desperate measures to keep them apart. But that strategy goes out the window when the Titanic collides with an iceberg, and due to a design flaw begins to sink - despite being proclaimed 'unsinkable'. Now Rose and Jack must fight to stay alive, but is young Jack already doomed because of his lower status as a steerage passenger?
