Summary:After smuggling herself onto the RMS Titanic, British-Chinese teenager Valora Luck reunites with her twin brother and tries to convince him that their acrobatic training could be their ticket to a better life.
Southampton, 1912. British-Chinese Valora Luck smuggles herself aboard the Titanic with two goals: to reunite with her twin brother Jamie, and to convince a part-owner of the Ringling Brothers Circus to take the twins on as acrobats. Val talks her way into opulent first-class accommodations and finds Jamie with a group of fellow Chinese laborers in third class. But in the rigidly stratified world of the luxury liner, Val's ruse can only last so long, and after two long years apart, it is unclear if Jamie even wants the life Val proposes. When the supposedly unsinkable ship is dealt a fatal blow, Val and her companions are in a race to survive. --
