As outlined by show-business trade paper 'Variety', the movie is based on "the conflict between refugee Vietnamese and local fisherfolk around Galveston Bay, Texas, circa 1979[-]81". Film critic Roger Ebert
stated "the stories were about a blood feud on the Texas Gulf between the veteran local shrimp fisherman and new arrivals from Vietnam who were, the locals said, invading their traditional grounds and, spoiling the fishing". See more
