Beverly está en Hawaii ayudando a su tío en su tienda de submarinismo, aprendiendo a bucear y tratando de bajar de peso y conseguir novio. Cuando Garth, un excelente buzo, se interesa por ella, Beverly está feliz, hasta que resulta que a Garth no le interesa más que una cosa. Cada vez más débil por la drástica dieta que se impuso ella misma, Beverly se encuentra en graves problemas cuando tiene que defenderse de Garth bajo el agua.

Beverly is in Hawaii, helping her uncle at his dive shop, learning how to dive and trying to lose weight and get a boyfriend. When Garth, an accomplished diver, shows an interest in her, Beverly is ecstatic, until it turns out Garth is only interested in one thing. Struggling with failing strength from her self-imposed starvation diet, Beverly finds herself in deep trouble when she has to fight Garth off underwater.
