An independent commercial fisherman must fight to save his boat, his livelihood, and his way of life.
In New Bedford, Massachusetts, a third-generation independent commercial fisherman (P.J. Sosko) struggles to keep a grasp on his way of life—and a long-held family boat—as costs rise and the heavily regulated fishing industry is pushed toward a corporate model of efficiency. While developing an unlikely relationship with a marine biologist (Philana Mia), he is tempted to do whatever it takes to keep his boat.
