The fishermen of Cornwall are signed to Universal Records and achieve a top ten hit with their debut album of Sea Shanties in the lighthearted, feel-good movie “Fisherman’s Friends”, based on a true story.

A fast living, cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate "fish out of water" as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune.

As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to reevaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
