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>

Great
9 May 2001 | by (Kongsberg, Norway) – See all my reviews

A great TV film about a boy in his best age that wishes to be a fisherman, but will his wishes be true? Great acting makes this movie great. If you like dramatic films, this is a film for you. The movie takes time in the ninties and how a young boy fights for his rights to be a fisherman. One of the better TV films.
