A stunningly photographed adventure film set in Florida's Gulf Coast.
Greek-American father and son sponge diving entrepreneurs, Mike and Tony Petrakis (Gilbert Roland) (Robert Wagner), find themselves in plenty of sc over fishing territory with the Rhys' - a rival family of English descended hook-boat fishermen who are prepared to resort to violence and even murder to maintain their established fishing grounds. Run-ins between the Petrakis and Rhys family lead to the exchange of threats, resulting in all-out brawls, and a most surprising outcome - love. When Tony Petrakis meets Gwyneth Rhys (Terry Moore), he falls head over heels. In this adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, will the love of two feuding families bring them together or will it tear them asunder?
