The story of real fishermen going about their hazardous tasks in the North Sea fishing-grounds off the British Coast. The fishing boat departs from a Scottish town, and the crew is seen going through their routine tasks. On arriving at the fishing grounds they encounter a storm that disables their craft. They radio for help and the rest of the film shows primarily the manner in which the government coastal-radio supervises the rescue the the fishing boat. Written by
