Gripping sea adventure in which survivors from a sunken luxury liner crowd into a small boat commanded by Power, whose initial aim is to save all. Many of those crammed into the boat or clinging to it in the water are sick or dying. It soon becomes apparent to the mortally injured Nolan, one

of the ship's officers, that Power must exercise a survival-of-the-fittest rule. To prove his point, Nolan shockingly hurls himself into the sea, shouting to Power before he slips beneath the waves that he must get rid of the infirm or all will die. Knowing the food and water on board will not

provide for all and, against the protests of his lover, Zetterling, and fellow officer and friend Boyd, Power weeds out the weak to save the strong. A telling portrait of survivors in crisis who first favor Power's actions, then later condemn him when a rescue ship appears on the horizon, this is

not for the squeamish.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
