Dark Tide

Synopsis: Kate is a shark expert whose business has been failing since a shark attack killed a fellow diver under her command. Once dubbed "the shark whisperer," Kate is haunted by the memory of the attack and unable to get back into the water. With bills piling up and the bank about to foreclose on Kate's boat, Kate's ex-boyfriend Jeff presents her with a lucrative opportunity to lead a thrill-seeking millionaire businessman on a dangerous shark dive - outside the cage. Battling her self-doubts and fear, Kate accepts the proposal and sets a course for the world's deadliest feeding ground - Shark Alley.

the Bank cormorant, the...

- Do you see sharks?

- Oh, yes, yes.

There are sharks out there.

- You will be able to see the sharks.

- Can we go on the water? Cage?

- No, no. We don't do...

- Take pictures?

- We don't do shark diving.

- Not on the water.

If you're lucky, you'll be able

to catch the whales.

- We want the sharks.

- No.

We don't do that.


- Thank you.

- All right.

- What's happening, Zukie?

The bad news, the good news,

or the house blend?

I wanna hear that we have

as many customers as those guys.

All right. Tell me.

Okay. The bank called.

They're gonna take your boat.

No, they're not.

I got a second mortgage.

I'm just waiting on the bank

to approve it.

Well, now they're saying

they can liquidate your assets.

Oh, yeah? Really?

I wanna see them try that.

Get a lawyer.

It has to be a good lawyer.

You can't afford a bad one.

Good point. Okay.

- Good news.

- Good news:

We've got three for today.


Got three tours. Whoo-hoo!

No, no, no.

Three people, one tour,

and that's it for the rest of today.

Okay. Well, house blend.

- Jeff called.

- Ah.

Don't wanna know.

He says you haven't

returned any of his calls.
