"[An] utterly delightful movie." – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

"If you're looking for a feel good, sweet romantic comedy that is based upon a true story, then look no further." – Pamela Powell, Daily Journal, Kankakee IL

Based on a true story, a fast living, cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty-singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate "fish out of water" as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families (including Tuppence Middleton) who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to reevaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
