Filmed over four years among coastal communities in Norway, Newfoundland as well as Ireland, this documentary from the award winning maker of The Pipe, focuses on the lives of fishermen facing down the big-money interests of factory ships, oil and gas explorers. Narrated by Brendan Gleeson it shows that the competition for the use of the resources on the open ocean is fierce and potentially damaging to the sustainability of coastal communities.
