Storyline

The St. Christopher is a Kodiak, Alaska based fishing boat that fishes the waters of the Bering Sea. Its crew is a disparate group, with those in authority - most specifically Captain Jack Colvin, and deck boss Stubbs - having an "you better do your job and do it well or else" attitude, which affects primarily novice seaman Tommy, who is looking for a financial windfall while having an adventure. For Stubbs, being disagreeable seems to be a sport. For Jack, it's because of the dire financial situation he's in, which didn't even allow him to pay his crew on their last outing. He is caught in a catch-22 situation: the St. Christopher has not passed its safety inspection, but he can't afford the necessary repairs unless he goes out fishing, most specifically in the lucrative scallop fishery, and brings in a good haul.

badly written story of tragedy on the Bering sea.
21 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a hundred times more fascinating to hear a tragic tale straight from the mouth of a survivor than it is to see it re-created so badly. I was mad at myself for continuing to watch this movie. It could not have been made worse if Shelly Winters had shown up on deck. The characters were unlikeable and written so poorly, I felt sorry for the actors. The conversations they were having were pointless, especially while they were losing their lives in the water. It seemed less important to have a good script than to make sure every actor had blue eyes. The producers should do us a favor and stick to reality television.
