Storyline

The story of an improbable romance between a cosmopolitan career woman and a small-town fisherman. When sophisticated New York journalist Edith Iglauer is assigned to go to British Columbia to write a frivolous piece on the fishing industry, she butts heads with local fisherman and notorious loner, John Daly. While she thrives on the fast-paced life of Manhattan, he loathes pretension and could go days without speaking to anyone. But when the two are caught in a perilous situation, they are forced to put aside their pettiness and re-examine their lives. With external factors stripped away, they begin to fall in love. Ultimately, Edith must decide between staying in the glamorous world she has always cherished or leaving it all behind for a chance at love. Written by DANIEL

It takes a romance-loving person to enjoy this movie to the fullest. There are areas of the movie that could have been improved upon as far as the acting/directing categories go. I always try to see beyond the mistakes of everyday human errors and get to the point of the story. Personally, I enjoyed this movie and taped it when it came on television recently. I've enjoyed Tim Mathiason and Jaclyn Smith for as long as I can remember and to have them together in a movie made it that much more enjoyable. To have someone argue and fight as these two did right from the start made it challenging to say the least. But when each finally got their personalities out of the way, they realized they could enjoy each other for what they truly are. Hardworking, intelligent, peace-loving people with principals and an extreme desire to find truth and companionship. Some may say that this movie was a total waste of time and money, let alone the waste of what was an excellent script, but sometimes you have to look beyond the poor directing to see the wonderful love and joy these two people finally brought to each other. I loved the comraderie the local townspeople had for each other and the "spirit" that this story was intended to have. The scenery was incredible and I loved the environmental concerns. If anyone has a chance to see this movie, look beyond the surface and take a glance at what really happened. Personally, I give it a thumbs up...no swearing, violence and it really did have a great story to it.
