Synopsis: Famous models Carl and Yaya are invited on a luxury cruise with a group of unimaginably wealthy passengers, a Russian oligarch, British arms dealers and an alcoholic captain who invokes Marx. In the beginning, everything is looks promising for enviable Instagram posts. But when a storm hits and everyone gets seasick during a dinner with the captain, the idyllic cruise turns into a fiasco. Carl and Yaya find themselves stranded on a desert island with a bunch of billionaires and one of the yacht's cleaners. The hierarchy is turned upside down on the island, as the cleaner is the only one who knows how to fish.
