Brought up to be a fisher, Gus (played by Zach Gilford) wants to do nothing else with his life but fish. Fishing is his passion, it’s his love, it’s what drives Gus to make it through the day. However, Gus’s life is not quite as simple as going fishing. At home his parent fuss and fight with each other over who is the better fisher and he has to live in the shadow of his father the famous fisher/author. Life for Gus is a mystery, it’s one where he knows that he loves to fish but he don’t know who he is. All that Gus knows is that he’s on the world but he wants to know where he fits in. Soon after getting his own place where he can fish all day and work on his lures, Gus meets Eddy (played by Amber Heard), a girl who is free-spirited but also loves fishing just as much as he does and who will change his life in ways he never expected.
