Lifetime Movies’ Deadly Excursion Plot
Many are feeling that cold wave in the Midwest right now, but it’s already spring break in Lifetime-Land. This new flick will see a mother and her daughter go on what turns out to be a deadly excursion.
Samantha McCarthy and her college-aged daughter, Ellie, take a vacation together during spring break. They book a private boat cruise, ignoring the shady reputation of the captain, Javier Delacroix.
By the time alarms go off in their heads, the McCarthy ladies are deep in Javier’s trap.
They soon realize that he’s some kind of human trafficker holding them hostage with nowhere to escape but the ocean.
Javier intends to kidnap Samantha, but Ellie doesn’t serve his devious purposes. So he plans to get rid of her in a place where there’s no one to help them.
It’s up to Samantha now to not only save her daughter from getting killed, but to also get the both of them away from their captor.
