Cornish country doctor Ray Kincaide is delighted when his youth ex, London lawyer Liz Pescoe returns, charged by managing partner Harper to negotiate access to scallop fishing quota for a large Danish firm by convincing her father to break to port town's collective resistance, thus earning promotion. *Her father Cape Pescoe's business is doing badly, he wants to retire with her to taking charge or selling out. Her brother Ben, an alcoholic running the boat badly, died braving a dare in a predicted storm, leaving his schoolboy son Johnny a wreck, assuming himself guilty due to a fisherman superstition, rendering him an even more troublesome pupil. Meeting Ray again, who helps Liz with the family drama, makes her question if career should prime over private life, while his father, local legendary lawyer Peter Kincaide, ruthlessly plays on that emotional weakness to wriggle into the lucrative quota case when Harper doubts if Liz can swing it.
