Chinese horror thriller has been described by many International critics
on a Cruise Ship" and, despite a unique perspective, that's not far
from accurate. Here is the story of Liu Chen, a girl who defies her wealthy
family by eloping with her 'unacceptable' boyfriend Ye Qing. Together,
they embark on a honeymoon cruise which promises an elaborate Treasure
Hunt game. It all begins as innocent fun with a huge cash prize at the
conclusion for surviving contestants. But then it becomes obvious that
"surviving contestants" will only be a tiny, select group of
passengers while the majority will lose everything including their lives.
Trapped in the middle of the sea, with chaos whirling around her, Liu
Chen resorts to savage instincts to survive.
