O'Brien's Bait and Tackle Shop is drifting away, metaphorically and spiritually, and it's owners, the Grossman clan, are going with it. Herman searches for a Spanish Woman in a boat, Jerry runs off to work, and Marissa creates new worlds in the closet. Will the lure of the see and the power of writing save them?
