PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Biography
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.
The scenes where they both meet were actually shot on location at the Royal Suva Yacht Club in Fiji. Coincidentallly this was also the setting for another sailing movie called The Dove (1974) where the sailor Robin Lee Graham met Patti Ratteree onboard his yacht The Dove.
During a scene when Tami and Richard are watching a sunset, Tami references Bob Ross when poking fun at Richard. However given her time traveling overseas from 78-83 this couldn't have been a pop reference she knew. See Bob Ross's Joy of Painting was in production from 1983-1994, Season 1 ran from Jan 11th - Mar 29th 1983 and Season 2 ran from Aug 31st - Nov 23 1983. The first season of The Joy of Painting aired on many PBS stations across the east coast, but the audience was small. It ended up moving to a new home on public television. This time, at WIPB in Muncie, Indiana. Their initial trip would take them back to her home in San Diego and be home by October. Given these factors it's highly unlikely anyone on that side of the world would have heard of a new (low viewership) show that was Broadcast by non-commercial public television stations.
