Captain Richard Phillips kisses his wife Andrea goodbye and takes charge of his cargo vessel, the Maersk Alabama, bound for Mombasa. When Somali pirates are spotted off the bow and eventually board the vessel, Phillips conceals the crew below deck. With guns pointed at him by chief hijacker Muse and his hot-headed compatriot Bilal, Phillips cleverly keeps the Somalis away from his crew, putting himself in harm's way to ensure the safety of every other man on board.
