Upon A Sea Of Dreams: A Journey On The Titanic
It is the night of April 14, 1912. In a tiny third class cabin Emma struggles to quiet her infant brother and calm her younger sisters. The young girls think life on the Titanic is a game. They're on their way to a new life in America after all. But the playful air changes when the ship suddenly stops moving and sirens blast. The stewardess says they're to stay in their cabins. The American boy says his deck is flooded and the ship is sinking. They have to get out now. Do the girls stay put or leave? and if they leave, how do they get past the locked gate? an amazing character-based Drama with a unique look at this infamous event.
