At Risk: Passion and Peril at Sea

A cruise along the Mexican Riviera is the setting for a disparate group of passengers who dine together nightly. In that intimacy, they reveal aspects of their lives and family backgrounds which set in motion events ranging from unsettling to horrific.

Most at risk is Tracy Bradshaw, a young socialite who, in her husband’s absence, reflects on her need for major changes in her life. Contemplation gives way to complications as Tracy is attracted to the ship’s pianist, Marc Frias, who shares her affinity for the arts. In more treacherous territory, she becomes the target of a hate group when they learn of her Jewish background.

As events unfold, the light ambience of shipboard life dims then darkens as Tracy’s sense of unease escalates into full-blown terror. Her focus now shifts from concerns over her growing relationship with Marc and marital and career issues yet to be resolved, to what takes priority over all else–staying alive.
