Plot Summary

Sharon and her ten year old son Bayo live in Tickle Cove on the shores of Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland like generations of their family have before them. Sharon hates her life there. She dreams of moving to Toronto - where her now deceased mother was from - to eke out a better life for her and Bayo. She even leaves her big black packed trunk in the middle of the foyer as a symbolic gesture that that move will soon be happening. She equally hates her fisher father, Phillip Longlan, for subjecting her and her mother to life there. Phillip, who spends most of his time on a commercial fishing boat, only provides Sharon enough money to survive but not to achieve that dream of leaving. Bayo, however, doesn't want to leave, especially leave his grandfather behind. He wants to live and die by the sea, much like his deceased father, who he never knew. Based on his grandfather's stories to him, Bayo has a fantasy of rowing across the Atlantic to Portugal. On Phillip's next visit ashore, Bayo pleads with his grandfather not to give Sharon enough money to leave. Aging Phillip's own thoughts about his immediate future and Bayo learning more about his father may have an affect on what happens in Sharon, Bayo and Phillip's collective lives. Written by Huggo
