The movie, Titanic, opens with treasure hunter Brock Lovett, who is searching the Titanic wreck for a necklace named the Heart of the Ocean. Lovett hopes to find the Heart of the Ocean contained within a safe he uncovered from passenger Caledon ‘Cal’ Hockley’s safe. He instead finds a sketch of a naked woman wearing the desired necklace. A woman of 101 years, named Rose Calvert, sees this photo shown on the news and contacts Lovett. He is uninterested at first in what she has to say, but becomes intrigued when she tells him that she is the woman in the drawing. Rose is then flown onto their search boat to tell her story about Titanic. We learn that Rose Calvert used to be Rose DeWitt Bukater and was a first class passenger on the Titanic. She spoke of a drifter, Jack Dawson, who won third class tickets for the Titanic in a poker game. Him and his friend Fabrizio caught the ship just as it is leaving. Rose, her mother Ruth, and fiance Cal, all were first class passengers on the Titanic. Unhappy with how she believed her life would be in the future, Rose runs to the end of the ship and plans to jump. Jack saves her by not only talking her off the deep end, but also pulling her to safety when she slips. As the movie continues, Rose and Jack get closer.
