In the early days of WWII, ice and war in the North Atlantic keep the beloved freighter Le Celte from delivering her cargo of supplies and pleasures to Saint Pierre & Miquelon, a tiny outpost of France off the southern tip of Newfoundland. And now the islanders desperately yearn for liberation from their isolation ... and from their distant Vichy overlords. None more so than J r me Sabot who struggles to suppress crippling memories of WWI battlefields only to have his courage challenged anew ... or Adrienne Cormier who longs to escape from a cruel husband with her lover, but who harbors a secret that could ruin lives ... or young Marie-Lisette Morel who fantasizes of far-off places and adventures only to find herself in a real wartime adventure for which she will need uncommon courage. The Sea Around Them is a story of how oppressed people struggle for redemption and liberation ... and it's a story of the magic that can happen when the Northern Lights dance in the night sky.
