Based on the real-life experience of Tami Oldham () and her fiancé, Richard Sharp ( ), the film centers on the young couple as they get caught in a hurricane while sailing across the ocean. The preview shows not only terrifying storm scenes and danger in open water, but also teases a devastating aftermath. Described as “the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love,” the story looks like it will be as epic as it will be emotional.
Watch the trailer, released Monday by STX Entertainment, below.
