Jessica is grieving for her beloved father, trawler owner Jacob Kingdom, when a heated confrontation leads to her being cast out from the family home and the revelation of a shameful secret. She falls upon the kindness of strangers and it isn’t long before she meets a charismatic trawlerman, who is proud to walk out with Kingdom’s daughter on his arm.

With her cold-hearted brother now at the helm of the business, there is discontent amongst the fishermen and being Kingdom’s daughter soon begins to lose its charm. With Jessica facing the reality of trawler life and desperate to prove herself worthy of a place in the tight-knit community, does she have what it takes to weather the storm of her life to come, or will her secret hold her back from embracing who she is?
