Storyline

The 18 years old James Pfeiffer quits college and decides to become a fisherman like his father. Margaret and Russell are very upset with their son's decision. They had a lot of hopes for him, finishing law school and, like his older brother Joseph, make a decent living on shore rather than an uncertain and dangerous career at sea. James dreams of having his own boat though and is determined to persevere... Written by <willy.vanhaelen@advalvas.be>

excellent family movie for all ages
14 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is the second time we have watched this Hallmark movie,it is the classic struggle of a father and a strong-willed determined son,and the ability to overcome their differences and still remain close. The life of a fisherman is shown in great detail, the struggles and reality of their work is accurately portrayed by strong characters and the common bond that they all share to survive and make a living for themselves and their families. The Nova Scotia location where this story takes place is beautifully filmed. Kudos to all who were involved in making this film.
