President Carter's policy of placing human rights records at the forefront of America's relationships with other nations contributed to a cooling of Cold War relations in the late 1970s.
In 1980, for the first time in seven years, Fidel Castro authorized emigration out of Cuba by the country's citizens. The United States welcomed the Cubans, but later took steps to slow the tide when evidence suggested that Castro was using the refugee flight to empty his prisons.
On a remote top-secret floating facility called Aquatica, a team of scientists are searching for a cure for Alzheimer's disease. The team consists of Dr. Susan McCallister (Saffron Burrows), the scientist behind the experiment who decided to begin finding a cure after seeing her father suffers from Alzheimer's; Jim Whitlock; Dr. Janice Higgins; Carter Blake (Thomas Jane), a shark wrangler; Tom Scoggins, an engineer; etc.
Despite Blake's warnings, McCallister violates the code of ethics and creates three genetically engineered mako sharks. Her intent is to increase their brain capacity so the scientists can harvest tissue as a cure for Alzheimer's. Unfortunately, the increased brain capacity also makes the sharks smarter, faster and more aggressive—as well as growing to the size of great white sharks, gaining increased memory, and being able to swim backwards. Aquatica's financial backers are skeptical about the tests and following the attack on the teens, send corporate executive Russell Franklin (Samuel L. Jackson) to visit the facility.
In order to prove that the research is worth it, the team schedules a test to remove brain fluid bearing the protein complex from the largest shark. After removing the tissue, they rejoice as it brings test cells back temporarily. However, after the test, the shark breaks free and bites off Whitlock's arm. Blake tries to shoot it, but McCallister saves it by pressing the release button, sending it back to the holding pen. An emergency request is made for paramedics, while the team gets Whitlock to the surface.
The medical helicopter arrives and they manage to get Whitlock attached to the winch cable, despite a severe storm. However, the cable motor fails and Whitlock is dropped into the water. The shark which McCallister earlier saved grabs the cable and drags the helicopter into the communications tower, resulting in a massive explosion that kills Brenda and both pilots, and destroys the "surface level" (the facility's level above water,) stranding the surviving crew beneath. Then the smart but slaughterous sharks started their vengeful hunting for humans.
