Storyline

This is a story about grief and all the emotions it entails. A successful businessman attempting to resurrect his life buys and boards a dilapidated sailboat in a remote area on the shore of one of the Great Lakes, North America. A business associate comes to urge him to return to work, but relents when he sees his state. This is when viewers get more of a hint of the tragedy that he has experienced. Rather than push him further, the associate agrees to let him take all the time he needs. He passes the winter in this desolate location grieving desperately and gradually repairing the boat though other boaters have left for the winter. In the meantime, he makes friends of a widower sailor and a world-weary waitress at the marina. Through the slow moving yet beautiful and well played drama in this gorgeous lake setting, viewers come to know how he has reached this point in his life. By the early spring, he is feeling stronger and is ready to face society again. He sells the sailboat, now... Written by Red Perl

a haunting submersion into personal redemption
17 November 2012 | by (on a boat) – See all my reviews

This movie - is a fascinating & haunting personal growth story - but to understand it helps if you live on a boat / are on aboard one / own a boat.

Many aspects in this story would be lost on apartment or house dwellers (as well they should).

A true portrait of life on an older vessel in adverse conditions - cold & condensation is are just some of them.

My personal favorite - the scene with the head !

These parallels of repairing ones vessel back to live from total neglect is no simply task. Repairing & restoring - while suffering through it - is so contrary to the rapid throw away and sink'em style of other stories or lifestyles..

This movies sticks with you and evolves - if you give it the time it needs to fill your sails with air to propel you forward - caution this is NOT a mega cruise and there is no fresh shrimp at the buffet on the lido deck !
