"Surprising, intelligent and richly textured," says Leonard Maltin of director John Sayles' poetic drama. Joe (David Strathairn) is a fishing-boat skipper with a tragic past. Donna (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) is a luckless lounge singer with bad taste in men and a frustrated daughter (Vanessa Martinez). When the trio find themselves deserted in the Alaskan wilderness, they discover that their "family status" may cost them their lives.
