Navy captain becomes an inadvertent witness to the hasty hiding of a cache of drug cartel money by felons being pursued by the police in Los Angeles. The captain is a recent widower who has just lost his retirement job with a defense contractor and is, at the moment, without purpose and motivation.

Without any options, and with the assistance of a former shipmate, he stages his own suicide, undergoes an identity change and extensive plastic surgery. Armed with his new identity he escapes in his sailboat and makes the long solo journey across the Pacific Ocean to a small atoll near Tahiti where he finds romance and redemption.
