Clyde Mulgerhof wants nothing more than to live quietly on his old fishing boat at his dock in Bell Island harbor, digging clams and drinking to forget. But when his boat sinks, Clyde's life is thrown into turmoil. Finding himself homeless and broke - again - Clyde sets a wavering course to pull himself together. Aided by his best friend Donny Pavolini, Clyde navigates the oddball characters and pitfalls of a booze-soaked Bell Island summer, including a corrupt Harbor Master, an incident involving politicians, strippers and water balloons, and a long, strange trip to the Mainland. When Clyde's friend Norm Kelly offers him lodgings in the loft above his garage, Clyde soon finds himself trying - and failing - to avoid the amorous advances of both Norm's daughter Sara and his estranged wife Maureen. By Labor Day, Clyde's voyage has left him hard aground, until an unexpected rescue turns Clyde into a reluctant hero.
