This film presents a series of short archival sequences from that group of countries sometimes referred to as the North Atlantic Rim: immigrants at Ellis Island, wartime convoys in Halifax, a hovercraft crossing the English Channel, a fish farm in Scandinavia. A sense of shared "north Atlantic" identity that goes beyond narrow patriotism provides a framework for viewing the diverse experiences of the region's peoples. Scenes of oil spills and a missile launched from underwater serve to remind us of the need to protect our oceans through international cooperation.
