A family holidaying in Thailand battle to find each other after the Boxing Day 2004 tsunami.
The one film of note to have captured the horror of this famous storm most effectively; a quintessential old fashioned disaster movie but with the benefit of real life experience, vividly filmed in places, although a simple enough plot in itself with no real dimensions - beyond the simple drama of the characters searching for each other like needles in an apocalyptic haystack.
