This tense drama based on a real incident relates the story of the MS Achille Lauro, an Italian ocean liner that is hijacked by terrorists. Handicapped American retiree Leon Klinghoffer (Burt Lancaster) and his wife, Marilyn (Eva Marie Saint), are looking forward to a relaxing cruise, but their trip is thrown into chaos when four gunmen take control of the ship. As the passengers deal with their nerve-racking circumstances, authorities assess the situation and attempt to end the standoff.
