RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15,1912 after colliding with an iceberg during it's maiden voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, USA.

One night, Jack saves Rose from falling into the ocean when she was very upset. They developed quite a bond that Roses mother and her fiancé did not approve of. She explains the whole story from departure until the death of Titanic on its first and last voyage April 15th, 1912 at 2:20 in the morning.
