Overview

Following her husband Arthur's mysterious death, Rachel Baxley packs up her life as a State Department wife in Hong Kong and boards a freighter along with her husband's casket bound for the U.S. She begins to regret this decision when she meets one of the crew members, a handsome rogue named Jake Fontaine - who has smuggled his liquor above in Arthur's coffin! Suddenly, a typhoon hits and the freighter breaks apart. Marooned on a desert island with Jake they fall in love. Shortly thereafter, Jake comes to suspect that Rachel's "late" husband Arthur might not be dead at all. Rachel is stunned when Arthur arrives on the island with his heroin smuggling partners. In the ensuing chaos, Jake overcomes each of the smugglers and heroically rescues his new love, Rachel.
