A story of an Italian-Australian family down on their luck, who embark on a daring sea voyage to escape having their only asset taken from them--their boat. They need an extra hand, and take on a stranger, a young man with an uncertain past, who turns out to be fleeing the police. The challenges they face bond them together and change each of them forever. A beautifully told tale.
