|Plot Summary of San Andreas|
|"The San Andreas is a British hospital ship on its way to Scotland when it is suddenly bombed by German planes. Fifteen people die, and many are seriously injured (including the captain and chief officer). The crew of the San Andreas can't figure out what the Germans want with an innocent hospital ship. Then, they realize that there are saboteurs aboard the ship, telling the Germans the exact location of the San Andreas. No one can trust anyone else. The San Andreas is falling apart. Its radios are destroyed. And German U-boats are following the ship, ready to torpedo it. It will take sheer brilliance to get the ship to its destination."
