I am an amateur fisherman who has some experiences with the sea but not like Caleb's one of course. I think his being a Scotch has influenced his challenge with Bering. In the old times young people were obliged to confront nature in some way for proving their being a man. I found the movie realistic and surprised to see no one had reviewed yet. It is a documentary but has also a story of which a Hollywood writer could have written something great by adding other stories.
