One day, all are waiting for a ride of twelve days of quietness and relaxation aboard the Italian luxury cruise ship Achille Lauro. Everyone seems happy and content. No members of the passengers suspect that four Palestinian terrorists are among them. The most dangerous of all is their leader Molqi (Joseph Nasser). Among the hostages are Mr. Leon Klinghoffer (Burt Lancaster), and his wife Mrs. Marilyn Klinghoffer.
