It takes just six days and nights to cross the Atlantic on a luxury liner, but during that time, lives can be changed forever. Amidst the seething melting pot of 1600 passengers on the 'Transylvania' are David and Nicole. Nicole and her two teenage children, Rollo and Marianne, are keen on the voyage - but not David, or his mistress, Trish. Also on board are Jennifer - a youthful 39 - and her 20-year-old daughter, Stacy. If she can shake of the attentions of the maddening couple, Nobby and Aggie - veterans of the cruise world - Jennifer would like to fall for Earl, the young son of American couple Dwight and Charlene. By the time the 'Transylvania' docks in New York, the lives of all have been jarred, bruised and sexed-up, knocked-out or just plain shredded - and what seemed to be a set of inviolate futures now lies in utter disarray on the watery decks of this singular, castaway, floating city. S.O.S. is another wildly inventive black comedy from one of Britain's funniest writers.
