As lobstermen, a grandfather and his grandson continue a traditional, yet arduous way of life in a small lobstering community in northern Maine. Set amidst thick fog, their repetitive toils impart the inherent struggle, diligence and poetry of their daily, dance-like ritual at sea. The reality of their work is punctuated with serene moments where buoys and traps rise from the sea as if in a recurring dream, offering glimpses of quiet interspersed with their frenzied exertions.
