From acclaimed director Alexandre Aja ("The Hills Have Eyes") comes the new action thriller "Piranha 3D", in the latest eye-popping 3D technology. A new type of terror is about to be cut loose on beautiful Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents. But our heroine (Elisabeth Shue) is seriously outnumbered, and with only one chance to save the lake and her family from totally being devoured, she must risk everything to destroy the aquatic carnivores herself.

As a young woman in India, Divya seemed to have it all. She was beautiful, married to a handsome man of great wealth, and was mother to their precious daughter Linny. But when Divya began acting erratically, and, at times, outrageously, her seemingly-perfect life fell apart. Divya's husband abandoned both Divya and their three-year-old daughter, and the family disowned her after accusing Divya of having "bad blood." Rather than remain a pariah, Divya summoned the strength to take Linny to America, where she started life anew in suburban New Jersey. She fell deeply in love with an American, John, who not only became a surrogate father to Linny, but also cared for Divya during her bipolar episodes. Yet, her untreated illness took its toll. Linny became rebellious, and eventually ran away from home, sixteen and pregnant.
