"A ruthless Australian diamond merchant, Arthur Dorsett, and his daughters Dierdre and Boudicca attempts to destroy the value of the Diamond market by flooding the market with diamonds to increase the value of gemstones which he has bought up the majority of the worlds mines. His rapid diamond mining process using high frequency radio waves is killed thousands of marine animals and people and has the potential of killing thousands of more people in Honalulu Haiwaii.

Dorsett's third duagther Mauve and Pitt begin a relationship after he learns she ran away from the family. Pitt and Al also learn the sound waves are originating from Gladiator Island and go there to confront the Dorsetts. Pitt and Al rescue Maeve's sons and kill Arthur, Boudicca and Deirdre Dorsett—however, Deirdre fatally shoots Maeve before Pitt kills her. Pitt and Al flee, using the Dorsett yacht to make their escape. Al takes the children aboard a helicopter that was parked on the yacht, and as they fly away from the island, Al sees the yacht become engulfed by an ash cloud with Pitt still on board. After a few days, Al finds the yacht and that Pitt barricading himself from the searing heat and survived."
