Billy Campbell of AMC’s The Killing, Shawn Doyle of Big Love and Brian Downey of Hobo With a Shotgun will star in this film about six men lost to the North Atlantic Ocean.

“With this cast of actors and Shandi’s beautifully rendered screenplay, we feel we have all the makings of a film that will attract audiences and buyers around the world,” said producer Ralph Holt.

The film was acquired by Astral’s The Movie Network and Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central and is being filmed with the support of Telefilm Canada, Film Nova Scotia and development assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage.
