Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) is mesmerized by a mythical 150-year old confederate ship named 'Texas.'  Rumors exist of the vessel's existence, but no one truly knows its location.  Pitt receives a clue from a friend that the boat had once sailed through North Africa, but was stranded after a sea storm.

Pitt travels to the war torn area where he believes the ship is buried, only to discover the boat's strange involvement in an international plague that threatens aquatic life.  He teams up with Dr. Eva Rojas (Penelope Cruz) to investigate, though both become targets of a dictator named General Kazim (Lennie James).

Sahara was nominated for three Teen Choice Awards.
