Description

A ghost that haunts the human mind is the most terrifying of all. It's 1930 and the concrete ship is towed to its final resting place at Seacliff Beach. The town of Aptos is buzzing with anticipation for the grand opening of the restaurant and dance hall built inside the ship. Everyone has a dream for the promise of a night on the ship. Mary fights to convince her parents the "adults only" rule is unfair. Her mother, Lorene King, anticipates a final chance to rekindle her marriage and her husband's colleague, Jacob Archer, knows it's the perfect setting to win the woman he adores. The concrete ship, glowing with lights and filled with music has a dark side -- It's Prohibition and bootleggers know they can pick up their illegal deliveries when the parties are over and the lights go out. Greed and violence threaten to shatter the dreams of Lorene and those she loves. As the tragic events of Mary's childhood unfold before her uncomprehending eyes, she has a terrifying encounter with the ghost that dwells within the S.S. Palo Alto. In the end, Mary discovers the truth about the ghost that haunts the concrete ship.
