While pulling lobster traps from the sea, fishing couple Sara (Paige Turco) and Ben (John Mese) recover a buoy containing half a million dollars. Ben hopes to use the money on booze and babes while Sara sees the cash as her ticket out of her unhappy marriage and miserable coastal village. Her masterplan: to kill Ben with the help of her lover and Ben’s brother, Don (John Newton). But her plan suffers a major glitch when the owner of the buoy returns to claim the loot. And he is not the only one after it, there’s also a gang of heavily-armed mobsters and Kim the mob boss’ mistress.
Paige plays Sara, an unhappily married woman, who plots the murder of her husband, with the help of her lover and Ben’s brother, Don. Sara and Ben murdered her first husband Stu five years prior by shoving him down a flight of stairs. Sara made her husband’s death look accidental by drenching him with a bottle of booze. The two also collected a sizable amount of money from the insurance company that covered Stu’s life. Sara is an experienced pilot.
