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>

Wonderfully photographed film
7 November 2002 | by bjmatchettSee all my reviews

A wonderfully photographed film set in the world of sea fishing. The performances are top-notch, especially that of Peter Facinelli, as the idealistic young man that wants to follow in the footsteps of his ancestors to become a fisherman, even though everyone around him tries to discourage this dream. Wonderful performances exude from everyone throughout this heart-warming tale.
