Storyline

Successful businessman Adam returns to an island where he used to live and finds it barren and poverty-stricken. The major industry, a cannery that he and his brother Will owned, had been forced out of business due to a strike in which Will was killed. Now the remaining inhabitants want to kill Adam, but he convinces them that if they work together they can rebuild the island. Written by Paley Center for Media
