A trawler and its crew struggle to make ends meet as fish stocks dwindle. Desperate to maintain a livelihood that has existed in the family for generations, the Skipper's son, Sean (Martin Compston) decides to take on a secret cargo of Chinese immigrants. The trip back to Scotland becomes a nightmare as the stowaways endure hell in the hold. The Skipper (Gary Lewis), apparently unaware of his cargo, keeps the boat at sea chasing the big catch that will save his boat.

Written and directed by first time feature director Steve Hudson, with a powerful ensemble cast, this is a compelling and harrowing story of desperation and its tragic consequences.
