Based upon a true story of cheating in the annual fishing contest on Kaipara Harbour. Brian's life is in turmoil, given his recent divorce and being in extreme financial difficulty. He can't believe his luck when a large snapper falls into his hands days before the big contest. Wiremu is dead set against the idea, but things get complicated when Marcus enters the picture and attempts to blackmail Brian. There is a lot on the line when Brian also finds himself with a new romantic interest. Filmed at Paparoa, Pahi and Kaipara Harbour.
