Plot

Ted Andrews (Gary Busey) persuades his ex-wife Sandy (Belinda Bauer) to let their kids Mark (Mathew Stewardson) and Tracey (Candicé Hillebrand) accompany him and his girlfriend Laura Warner (Nancy Mulford) on a journey on his multimillion-dollar yacht to Australia, where he plans to sell the yacht.

However, after a few days, it turns out that Laura is member of a terrorist organization led by Jack Wilcox (Ray Sharkey), who wants the boat as a base for his operations. Jack takes over the yacht and only Ted can escape, and as a result, Mark and Tracey are kept as hostages.
