Bask in the unspoiled beauty that can only be found from the deck of a sailing ship. Romance, adventure awaits you on the Northern Merchant in Nassau, Bahamas.....
The allure was obvious and the appeal, strong. A cross-section of people from around the country set sail for one week in June for the adventure of a lifetime. This complex story of destiny interweaves the lives of passengers on a Bahamian sailing ship, making an unscheduled stop on the obscure island of Spanish Harbor.
Adam, a sculptor looking for inspiration, his wife Becca suffering from writers block, and their teenage daughter Cassie set sail with great expectations. Sailing with them is a disillusioned Catholic Priest on his way to a parish in the Caribbean, a doctor, an attorney and two college students; all searching and hoping to find.
What starts out as a disappointing but harmless tropical vacation takes a turn towards the macabre as destiny steps in and takes over. Their adventure begins
to take on a life of its own as the passengers challenge predestination and the strength of the human spirit.
