This story focuses on the relationship between a grandfather and grandson and the family legacy passed down between generations. Highlighting the Anderson family of Port Clyde, Maine, this short documentary is a portrayal of the strong influence of grandfathers on grandsons. In this family, where fishing has been a historical way of life, ever-changing times raise the issue of impermanence. The uncertainty of the future provides an impetus for a grandfather's desire to provide a moral compass for his family; leaving lessons not only about fishing, but also of acceptance and ingenuity and what it means to live a good life. Produced by: Marae Hart, Alan Hunter, Mujahid Suliman, Lindsey Thomas
