On the rough and rocky edge of the United States, Rev. Ted Hoskins takes his boat to as many churches as he can. When the summer people leave, there are barely enough residents to keep the churches going. With a white cross emblazoned on its side, the 72-foot boat "Sunbeam" is a church on the sea serving as second home to these weathered New England lobster men.
When Hoskins decided to retire, the Maine Sea Coast Missionary Society put out the call for anyone willing to pick up the struggle and found a young hospice chaplain named Rob Benson in Washington DC ready to uproot his wife and five-month-old baby to take over in Maine and allow Ted to return to his first love, the sea.
