In 1935 the August Gale hit New England and raged towards Newfoundland with waves as tall as three-story houses that swamped ships, broke masts in two, and swept every man on deck into the raging sea. Many fishermen disappeared. Pulitzer Prize journalist Barbara Walsh explores her father's painful memory of the storm and his father abandoning him as a young boy. The two return to Newfoundland to learn more about the infamous storm and Walsh's grandfather in the hopes of finding healing and answers.
