When the craggy patriarch of a struggling North Sea fishing company falls overboard of his vessel, his eldest son has to take over the family business, igniting dark tensions between three brothers. Stern and serious Jean is a single father to an 8-year-old and sees a dying fisheries business as having no possible future. Younger sibling Francis must hide his secret love affair and desperately wants to escape to seek happiness. Only black sheep William, returning home to an indifferent welcome, wants to carry on the family trade.
