Summary 

A documentary that takes you deep inside the dangerous world of commercial fishing. Set aboard a hulking fishing vessel as it navigates the treacherous waves off the New England coast—the very waters that once inspired Moby Dick—the film captures the world of the fishermen in starkly haunting, yet beautiful detail.

Review 

For anyone who has wondered what it is like to be a fisherman, this is a dark documentary shot entirely with GoPros and minimal dialogue, that shares what it is like to be out in the sea, with barely a lick of sleep, pulling in fish over the side of a boat. The boat itself is based in New Bedford and not the same film as the award-winning Russian film that shares the same name.
