A true story of survival, as a young couple's chance encounter leads them first to love, and then on the adventure of a lifetime as they face one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.
In reality, Richard and Tami met in San Diego, not Tahiti. Richard was sailing around the world with an English girlfriend, who he ditched in favor of Tami. It's true that Tami had been a cook aboard a tall ship.
When Tami asks Richard about his mother, he says, "She hung herself." This is a common mistake. Actually the correct term is "hanged". Pictures are hung, people are hanged.
