Brothers Joe, Harry & Miles live with their father, an abalone fisherman, on the SE coast of Tasmania. Everyday their dad battles the unpredictable ocean to make a living. He is a hard man, a bitter drinker who harbours a devastating secret that is destroying him. Unlike Joe, Harry & Miles are too young to leave home & so are forced to live under the dark cloud of their father's mood, trying to stay as invisible as possible whenever he is home. Harry, the youngest, bears his angst.
