In the ancient town of Hastings on England's south coast, fishermen go to sea in small, ten meter boats, much as their forebears did. One fisherman dates his family back to the 1580s. Now they face competition from big boats and worry that overfishing will ruin their livelihood. Their work is dangerous. They often have to go out in rough seas to support their families. Now and then a fisherman is lost at sea and when that happens, one wife says, "the fishermen stick together and help each other — always."
