In The Heart of Things, a young fisher, Junior, hangs himself to death from the mast of his boat. The fallout from the tragedy inspires his twin, Bren, to act on their lifetime dream, to be accepted as a fisher. Their determination puts their own sexuality in direct conflict with deeply rooted prejudices in their community.
