Out of all of the people in the supermarket, there are only 13 people left alive when the waters start to recede slowly. As the people trapped in the supermarket try to find a way out one of them is attacked by a 12-foot great white shark that only lives to feed. Just when they think things could not get any worse it is discovered that there are two great whites devouring the survivors of the Tsunami instead of just one.
