After receiving an emergency call from Big Harbor during a fierce storm, Elias, a young rescue boat, pulls off a brave rescue mission and is hailed the hero of the hour. He is thrilled to be headhunted by the harbor and sets out to start his new life, leaving all his friends behind.

Elias realizes that what he most needs to expose the mining operation is the help of his old friends.
