Robert Logan stars in still another of his many independently produced films designed for the family-matinee crowd. Logan plays Travis, the father of two young girls Courtney and Samantha (Heather Rattray and Shannon Saylor), all of whom set off from Tahiti on a perilous round-the-world sailboat trip. The journalist assigned to cover the voyage is Kelly (Mikki Jamison-Olsen), an attractive with whom Travis falls in love. The fifth member of the sailing party is youthful stowaway Jesse (Cjon Damitri Patterson). When the group is shipwrecked off the Alaskan coast, the film metamorphoses into one of those "Wilderness Family" adventures guaranteed to thrill both children and adults.
