You’ll experience shivers and thrills with Wreck on BBC3. and induce laughter! Nobody can hear you cry in the middle of the ocean, and that is undoubtedly true for the victims of the horrifying murders that took place on board The Sacramentum cruise liner.
Formerly known as Wrecked but lately renamed Wreck, the programme has been categorised as a comedy with elements of a slasher film. Oscar Kennedy, who previously starred in Ladhood, plays Jamie, a 20-year-old guy who is anxious to learn what happened to his missing sister on the boat.
He needs to infiltrate the 3000 strong team, who seem to be utterly unaware of the horrible killings going on right in front of them. Jamie plays detective in the upcoming film Wrecked to discover the evil truth.

In Wreck, Oscar Kennedy plays 20-year-old Jamie, who is searching desperately for his sister who has vanished. She disappeared mid-charter while working onboard The Sacramentum on a trip. In order to uncover information about his sister’s abduction, Jamie enlists as a new member and must join the 3,00-person crew.
Jamie is indoctrinated into the enigmatic practices of cruise crews and receives a crash education in the tribes among the staff as he adjusts to life on The Sacramentum. It quickly becomes apparent that the crew is divided into distinct tribes, including the mafias, theatre students, and low-paid labourers. However, they all share the traits of being overworked and underpaid.
As the crew engages in significant drinking and excess, Jamie learns that several gruesome deaths are occurring aboard the ship while everyone else seems unaware of them. Jamie is therefore compelled to adopt a detective persona in an effort to identify the culprit.
