Loosely based on an Ernest Hemingway novel and a classic Hollywood film, an American ex-patriate finds himself ensnared in World War II. Harry, a fishing boat captain, ferries supplies and people to Vichy-controlled Martinique. He turns down a job offer to help the Resistance, but a favor for someone else forces him to reconsider.
