The Shipping News
Quoyle is a hopeless hack journalist living and working in New York whose life takes a dramatic turn hen his no-good wife is killed in a spectacular road accident.
He heads for the land of his forefathers, the remotest corner of far-flung Newfoundland, with an aunt and his delinquent daughters -- Bunny and Sunshine -- in tow. Despite the challenges of the bleak environment Quoyle manages to establish a new life for himself and his family.
