A powerful story based on one family's survival of the 2004 tsunami. Maria, Henry and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise, but on the morning of December 26, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the centre of the Earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of black water races across the hotel grounds toward her. Based on a true story, this is the unforgettable account of a family caught, with tens of thousands of strangers, in the mayhem of one of the worst natural catastrophes of our time. However, the true-life terror is tempered by the unexpected displays of compassion, courage and simple kindness that Maria and her family encounter during the darkest hours of their lives.
