Nine-year-old Isabella, an upper-class girl, is forced to move to America with her slightly annoying older brother, an adventurous father and a down-to-earth mother. She's even more upset that she'll leave her school and her best friend, Anastasia. But what better way to experience going to America than taking the Titanic?
Not to mention, a happy surprise passenger for Isabella, possibly a beautiful maid for James, a new friend for Father, and a lavish trip for Mother. But the table turns, and not only is Father's friend super annoying, but Titanic is about to sink! Will the Norflooks survive this trip in search of the promised American Dream?
