Sam leaps into the body of Philip Dumont who is aboard the Queen Mary and is trying to prevent the marriage of Dumont's ex-wife Catherine Farrington to a gangster, Vincent Loggia, affectionately referred to as Vinny the Viper. She's still in love with Philip who inexplicably disappeared three years before while sailing in the south seas. Her father wants the marriage to go forward because Vinny has offered to buy his failing shipping firm. Catherine's younger sister is on Philip's side but Vinny is prepared to do whatever it takes to get rid of him.
