The film tells the true story of a Spanish couple (Watts and McGregor), and their three children (Holland, Joslin, Pendergast). It starts as the family begins their Christmas vacation in Thailand, with the intention of spending a few days at a tropical paradise resort. However, their idyllic vacation is interrupted on the morning of December 26th, 2004, when a devastating tsunami interrupts their relaxation and destroys the coastal zone separating the family and triggering a frantic search.
