A nurse is taking an amnesia victim, who was imprisoned by the Japanese during WW II, to the United States in a plane piloted by Richard Denning. The passengers include a Japanese colonel on his way to Manila to face war-crime charges, and a couple who were married on the day they were liberated from a Japanese prison camp. During the flight, the colonel breaks away from his guards, causes the plane to go out of control, and it crashes into the sea. The survivors get into a rubber boat and go through a minor-league version of "Lifeboat, with no Alfred Hitchcock sightings, until Air-Sea Rescue pilot Jim Willis rides to the rescue.Written by

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Who will not survive?
Coming after Hitchcock's "lifeboat" and before Richard Sale's "seven waves away" aka "abandon ship" , "seven were saved" suffers by comparison ; it has neither the suspense of the former nor the cruel realistic strength of the latter.
The title is stupid ,for it spoils most of the interest ; okay ,it's not the person one thinks the wreck will cost him his life but that's it .Made on a shoestring budget , the movie makes the best of it ,even though it has not much to offer.
