Titanic was a great British ship, which sank on the night of April 14, 1992, during its voyage from Southampton to New York. In this tragic event, 1514 of the 2223 people on board died. Titanic was the largest ship in the world at the end of its construction between 1909 and 1912 at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. The ship was divided into beautiful first-class rooms, where the rich ate and enjoyed music and at the bottom, there were rooms for the working class to sleep. Many of the passengers expected a new and exciting life in the United States, although for many it was their last night. The Titanic's story tells how a huge and luxurious ship was going to make the voyage from Britain to New York. During its voyage on the night of April 14, the ship collides with an iceberg, so the deck of the ship breaks, and the ship begins to sink. When evacuating the Titanic they realize that they are not carrying boats or life jackets for all passengers. Because of this problem, they decide to evacuate first all the women and children on the ship, although there were people like Cal Hockley who cheated to save their lives.

Titanic is also well known for the love plot between Jack Dawson and Rose.

Jack Dawson: Born in a town near Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, on June 17, 1889. He didn't know who his parents were, although he knew them and used to fish on the ice with his father. Once, Jack fell into an icy lake where he almost died of hypothermia. His parents died when he was 15 in a fire that resulted in him starting to live alone and then traveling the world. At some point, he met Fabrizio De Rossi, probably in Italy, and became his best friend, even traveling together.

Jack in the movie was a poor third-class artist who was able to board the boat after winning poker tickets, along with Fabrizio. In his early days on the Titanic, he was able to enjoy his luxury and spend time with Fabrizio and a new friend, Tommy, until one day he met Rose DeWitt Bukater, a first-class passenger, trying to commit suicide by trying to jump from the stern.
