10 Days... 48 Hours
After a six-month strike, the trawlers are once again heading out from Bonavista, bound for fishing grounds on the Grand Banks. In 10 days they will return with their catch ... 48 hours later they will cast off again. In the framework of this rhythm are captured the danger and the tedium of life on a modern fishing boat. The director also turns his camera to the shore, where the processing plant explodes into activity with every docking, and where families live to the cadence of ships and men that come and go.
