It's New Year's Eve, and the passengers of the luxury liner, S.S. Poseidon, fill their glasses and begin the countdown to midnight. In the midst of the black-tie celebration, an undersea earthquake off Crete sends a massive tsunami crashing into the ship, capsizing her, and tossing the first-class party-goers around the dining room like so many rag dolls. After the ship finally settles, upside-down, Reverend Frank Scott, a minister, is able to convince only a small group of survivors that the path to survival means a harrowing climb upward, through the overturned decks, to reach the hull. Braving fire, blocked exits, submerged corridors, unexpected explosions, and the continually-rising water, the rag-tag group finally reaches the promised land of the engine room -- and eventual rescue -- but not before losing four of the ten adventurers in the unforgiving bowels of the ship.
