Former oil rig worker John Sanders (Lou Diamond Phillips) became a Louisiana fishing captain after a tragic accident ended his career. In need of money, he agrees to help his ex-wife, Kelli (Kristy Swanson), whose company is having trouble extracting oil upriver. Meanwhile, thugs working for a Jamaican gangster head to the same bayou searching for $3 million buried underwater. Both the scientists and the criminals are menaced by a man-eating shark that can survive in fresh water.
