After RMS Titanic strikes the iceberg passengers and crew face a life or death situation. Paolo desperately tries to save his brother who has been locked in a cupboard with the Italian stewards. Mabel Watson is locked in a stateroom while she is desperately looking for her book. Jim Maloney finds himself having to rescue one of this children. John and Muriel Batley cling to life on wreckage after the ship goes down as do many other of the passengers. Only one of the life boats returns to rescue those in the water. For the most part, they are too late. Most of the passengers will die, though a few will survive, some by their bravery and some others through deceit.
