      Is this a comedy-thriller? That would be different since there have been a few thrillers/dramas (and who knows how many scripts) with this general predicament.

      What is the purpose of this happening with a stranger, what extra conflict comes from it? They both want to survive and will work together, it seems. Clarify if it’s a matter of one or both hating or mistrusting the other or…

      While lonely is good in general, it is assumed with this kind of character and better to say something more significant about her. Same with the co-lead, we need more than “a man.”

      Is the boat a yacht? Be specific.

        Or alternative based on the guidelines:

        When a lonely woman finds herself in the middle of the ocean in a sinking boat with a mysterious man she just met, she must employ all her resourcefulness to keep it afloat.

        ..this reads better too
        Suggesting what’s stopping her from keeping it afloat will add to the span of her action (which I don’t know how you plan to sustain for a feature length)

          What’s the story about?  Figuring out how and why she got into the predicament?  Or figuring a way out of her predicament?

            I can’t envision a thriller based on trying to keep sinking boat afloat. Think titanic. That was actually a love story. If you are still developing this idea how about something like this:

            “After a night of indiscretion, a woman wakes up on a boat next to a strange man and that’s not her only problem. The stranger seems intent on killing her. “

            Still you have the problem of a whole movie taking place on a boat so not many places to run! Would need to move action aground.
