The British movie stars Holly Earl (Once Upon a Time in London; Dracula: The Dark Prince), Jack Trueman, Catherine Amy Hannay, Malachi Pullar-Latchman (The Three Muskateers; Hounded; Open All Night) and Thomas Flynn (Little Fish).

A group of spring-breakers is enjoying a weekend in Mexico. After a big night of partying on the beach until dawn, the friends steal a couple of jet skis and take them out to sea, but end up in a horrific head-on collision.


After one of the jet skis sinks, the group finds itself stranded two miles from land on one remaining, broken-down jetski and struggling with a badly injured friend. With no clear way home and predators circling in the choppy waters below, the true horror begins…
