‘Overboard’ Synopsis

Joanna is a rich, frigid, bitch in a loveless marriage. She embodies the adage money doesn’t buy happiness because she has a ton of money and all it will buy – jewelry, yachts, and even a talking ape for a butler, all this notwithstanding, she is a miserable shrew.

While docked in a little town, she hires a white trash carpenter Dean Proffit, played by RJ MacReady, to build her a custom closet. Unhappy with the wood used, she stiffs him and pushes him and his tools overboard and sets sail.

Learning that karma is in fact a bigger bitch than herself, Joanna is also pitched overboard. She is fished out of the ocean by a Portuguese fisherman who mistakes her for a foca – a seal. She has complete amnesia, well almost complete amnesia because she still remembers how to act like an absolute bitch.
