Hold your breath as Paul Walker (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS) and Jessica Alba (SIN CITY) star in INTO THE BLUE, a tense, exciting underwater action/adventure set in the dangerous, shark-infested waters of the Bahamas.
In less than 60 feet of water, the world's oceans hold over $6 billion in treasure ... still waiting to be found.
Hurricane season in the Bahamas brings both destruction and deliverance. Most islanders fear the wild winds and incessant rains. For undersea treasure hunters, though, the hurricanes can be a blessing. Their powerful waves churn up the ocean bottom, lifting years of sand and possibly exposing gold-laden galleons long buried among the reefs.
Jared Cole (Paul Walker) is a part-time treasure hunter with a leaky boat who dreams of striking it rich in the clear turquoise waters off New Providence. His girlfriend, Samantha "Sam" Nicholson (Jessica Alba), has already realized her dream, working as a shark handler at a resort while living with Jared in a threadbare trailer on an idyllic tropical beach.
The happy couple's lives are unalterably changed when Bryce Dunn (Scott Caan), Jared's childhood friend and a successful New York attorney, comes to Jamaica with his new girlfriend Amanda Collins (Ashley Scott). Bryce acquires a beautiful mansion and a luxury yacht that the quartet puts to good use as a party boat as they free dive around the island.
The merriment takes a serious turn when Jared finds evidence of an ancient shipwreck. The four friends decide to partner as they search for enough relics to identify the old ship and claim it as their own.
Then, on a later dive, they uncover another, more ominous wreck nearby.
Jared and Sam want no part of this dangerous new discovery, but Bryce and Amanda see it as a way of financing their expedition. Jared realizes the money would help him compete on the same level as the islands' top salvagers, especially his longtime rival Derek Bates (Josh Brolin) and his assistant, Quinn (Chris Taloa).
Sam convinces Jared to abandon any plans for taking advantage of this new treasure. But Amanda and Bryce have other ideas. Sneaking out in the dead of night, the two steal some of the cargo with a scheme to profit from it, using a shady nightclub owner, Primo (Tyson Beckford), as their connection.
Bryce and Amanda have miscalculated, however, and find their lives in jeopardy unless they deliver the entire shipment to Primo. When Sam finds out, she turns to a friend and local policeman, Roy (Dwayne Adway), for help.
Now, what began as a carefree treasure hunt turns into a deadly battle and Jared and Sam's innocent world is thrown into chaos.
