The scene opens with a party happening on the boat. College kids out for Spring Break. The Captain gives newly employed Susan a chance at the wheel. Suddenly another boat comes up and the Captain tells Susan to get the kids down below. However, she is too slow and the kids are forced down by the men in masks. On of the kids has a cell phone and drops it after taking some video footage. The Captain is shot when he tries to kill one of the men. Meanwhile, Danny and Steve are pushing Steve’s dad’s old car up a hill. Steve offers that Danny steers and Danny is upset that Steve made him push for 9 miles. A tow truck comes and asks if they need help. Steve gets a call and asks the tow truck to take them to the Coast Guard. They go off and find the boat that was high jacked by pirates and find the body of the captain and one of the pirates. They are about to leave when they hear a sound. They open a cabinet and find Susan alive. ..
