Inspired by a true story, a cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to Cornwall for a colleague’s stag weekend where he is asked to sign a record deal with a group of shanty-singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ struggling to gain the respect of the band who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. Attempting to overcome the fishermen’s scepticism about the music business, he finds himself drawn into the community, has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty.
