One night Fisher unexpectedly witnesses something he wished he hadn't and believes his life is suddenly in great danger. People he’s trusted his whole life are after him.

Stealing a small sailboat and disappearing into the night, he does just that.

While on the run, Fisher quickly comes to the realization that life is hard. Like it or not, his survival depends on growing stronger both physically and mentally. But he doesn’t have a choice. One day the drunkard lobsterman Skinny Pete stumbles onto the island where Fisher is hiding. The situation grows into a challenging problem, and he’s forced to take action.
