Based on the true story of a group of fishermen from Port Issaac, Cornwall who are signed by Universal Records and achieve a top ten hit with their debut album of Sea Shanty’s and even went on to play the main stage at Glastonbury in 2011.
In a twist of fate, cynical music executive Danny (Daniel Mays) finds himself in a small Cornish village trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. Attempting to overcome the fishermen’s skepticism about the music business he finds himself drawn into the community, has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship.
Also joining Daniel in the cast are James Purefoy, Dave Johns, Tuppence Middleton, David Heyman, Maggie Steed, and Noel Clarke.
