Borbás Edina - Hullámok csapdája
Arabella a fiatal, életvidám, New York-i zongorista lány, nem találja helyét a nagyvilágban. Úgy érzi, menekülnie kell a mindennapi kudarcok, és legfőképpen az őt érzelmileg kihasználó pasija elől. Változást akar életében, ezért jelentkezik A nagy kaland című valóságshow-ba; azt remélve, hogy a műsor távol tartja tőle a férfit, aki annyi csalódást okozott már neki. Nem is sejti, hogy a lelkében háborgó hullámok csak még inkább felkorbácsolódnak; harcba kerül önmagával és egy új, nem várt szerelem is megérinti. A játék egy Genovából induló luxushajón zajlik. A műsor szerkesztői mindent megtesznek, hogy végletekig hajszolják a szereplőket. A kezdeti barátságos légkör hamar átcsap ádáz, gátlástalan vetélkedésbe. A törés Arabella számára is elkerülhetetlen: hamar összemosódik játék és valóság. A feszültséget fokozza, hogy bűnözők rabolják el a műsorvezetőt, váltságdíjat követelve a show szervezőitől. Az erőszak és a zsarolás miatt az irányítás kicsúszik a stáb kezei közül. A nézők mindebből természetesen semmit nem vehetnek észre; a show-nak folytatódnia kell!
