This documentary-style drama pictures what would have happened if the true incident it is based upon had been handled differently. In the true incident, a number of Sri Lankan refugees were set aswim off the coast of Newfoundland, and were immediately rescued (and held) by Canadian Immigration authorities. In the story, the refugees make it ashore and begin to establish relationships with the residents of the small Newfoundland fishing village of Brigus South.
