So, our main character is Harvey, who is a spoiled brat. His father is a business tycoon, who is very busy doing business all the time. He shows his love to his son with gifts and money, not by spending time with him. Harvey is the worst kind of child, who already at his age is using his wealth to get his way and also to be mean to other children.
Harvey soon learns that his money means nothing to these fishermen. He has to wait a few weeks before going to shore because they're not going to give up on their fishing season. Nobody coddles him and no one puts up with his whining. The fisherman who watches over him the most is Manuel. The only problem I had was having a hard time understanding Manuel, and yes, I speak Portuguese. I just couldn't place his accent anywhere. I looked it up, and apparently, Spencer Tracy based it on a Yiddish accent he used this one time in a theater performance. So, just so you know, Yiddish=Portuguese obviously.
