Defying social pressure, a woman commits herself to lobster fishing and the sea

In this meditative short documentary, a woman who works on a lobster boat reflects on what keeps her doing a dangerous, male-dominated job despite pressure from friends and family to return to school or find a new line of work. Instead of caving to those pressures, she embraces living outside the ‘real world’, seeing beauty and clarity in a life connected to the sea, and finding meaning in the very act of defying expectations.
