On April 14, 1912, R.M.S. Titanic struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage. Over one thousand five hundred people were lost. This docudrama follows the personal stories of some of the passengers and crew aboard on that fateful night. John Jacob Astor (David Janssen) and his new bride Madeline (Beverly Ross), Laurence Beesley (David Warner), Molly Brown (Cloris Leachman), a group of Irish emigrants, the wireless operators, and the stewards are among the characters.
