There are a lot of complications in the couple’s lives right now, and thus, the two decided to step out of their houses and spend some time away from their normal busy routines. They are in touch with their family through social media only. On the second night of their stay, the water bungalow in which the two were staying gets flooded and tears apart due to a flood storm. Kyle’s leg gets severely injured.

A ship passes through their shelter, and thus, they try to create a smoke alarm. Although, in this process, their home gets destroyed, and they then had to climb on a wooden flooring to save from drowning. During the difficulties of childbirth, Kyle left Jaelyn, and thus, he apologizes to her. The two reconcile with each other.

A shark attacks the two, and it bites Kyles’s leg off. He is left to bleed to death. When they finally hit the shore, Jaelyn tries to drag Kyle’s body onto the sand and collapses due to exhaustion. When she wakes up, a big tide comes in and takes Kyle’s body away. Before she could do anything to save him, a group of sharks devours his meat. While trying to escape, a shark attacks Jaelyn and bites her leg off.
