Luke welcomes his friend Matt and his girlfriend Suzie that come from London and Matt's sister and Luke's former girlfriend Kate that comes from Sydney to sail with him and the sailor Warren in a sailboat. However, the vessel hits an underwater rock and capsizes with an opening on her bottom. Luke advises that they should swim in the north direction to reach the Turtle Island, in Queensland, Australia, while they have strength since there is a current moving the boat in the opposite direction of land but Warren prefers to stay on the hull waiting for help since there are sharks in the water. The quartet swims, but they are hunted by a great white shark.

Did You Know?
Of sharks, the film's writer-director-producer, Andrew Traucki, said: "Sharks and shark attacks are a huge part of the Australian culture and how the rest of the world perceives us. It's not uncommon to hear of friends or relatives that arrive from overseas but are too scared to enter the ocean because they believe they'll be taken by a shark. Mention sharks at a party and everyone will have a story or a take on them. Indeed if you can believe the website digital or search engine Google, sharks are one of the most searched for terms in Google from within Australia. The animal is synonymous with this country and yet Australians have never made a feature film about them. The American's took one of our true stories and turned it into a very successful film called 'Open Water' . For 'Jaws'  they came to Australia to get their shark footage [at Dangerous Reef in South Australia], but here in Australia we've never made a feature film about one of our most notorious cultural ambassadors. Well that's now going to change." See more
