Kate plays the role of Rose DeWitt Bukater, a first-class passenger of the Philadelphian society on the Titanic. She falls in love with Jack Dawson, a third-class passenger who travels around as a drawing artist, played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
Treasure hunter Brock Lovett is looking for the famous diamond 'C'oeur De La Mer' or 'Heart Of The Ocean' on the bottom of the ocean in the wreck of the Titanic. When Lovett thinks he will find the diamond in a safebox, he finds there a sketch in which a young woman is wearing the diamond on a necklace.
After showing the drawing on a TV program, an old lady called Rose Dawson claims to be the young woman in the drawing.
Rose is brought to the explorer's vessel to help them determine the location of the diamond, but instead she tells the real story of the sinking of the Titanic.
Rose was a 17 year old rich girl, travelling to the USA to marry Cal Hockley (Billy Zane). Ruth DeWitt Bukater (Frances Fisher), her mother, wanted Rose to get married to Cal Hockley, because of his status. But Rose felt trapped inside her own world, it's like a golden cage and she does not want to marry Cal.
Because of all that she wants to jump of the ship and that's where Jack Dawson and Rose really meet. Jack talks Rose back on the ship and after that they get to know each other better, until they fall in love.
This all is ofcourse against the will of Hockley and Rose's mother, they try to separate them several times.
What a confusion, but still the Titanic hits an iceberg and starts to sink.
