Set in a rural fishing community fighting to hold tight onto its traditions as the world shifts around it, THE CATCH follows a troubled woman’s return to her estranged family in coastal Maine. With her lobsterman father fighting off an outside attempt to corporatize the local harbor, Beth and her ex-boyfriend make plans to rob local drug runners and skip town. When the robbery at sea goes bad, Beth must decide between saving herself or taking responsibility for the chaos she has created. THE CATCH is based on true crime reporting and personal stories heard on lobster boats and in small towns across New England.
