Ten singing men from the fishing village of Port Isaac in Cornwall are visited by music producer Danny (Daniel Mays) and his ten buddies from London, who wants to win them for a record deal. It turns out that the action is just a joke on the part of his boss, but over time, the otherwise cynical Danny really believes that he could make a hit with the band. But first, Danny and his buddies stand out in the village, especially negative. The friends spend a bachelor weekend in the countryside and behave accordingly. At the latest when visitors from the big city have to be fished out of the water during stand-up paddling, they are on everyone’s lips. Their rescuers around fisherman Jim (James Purefoy) will see the boys back sooner than they suspect, because next to their work, they are shanties as “Fisherman’s Friends”. Spontaneously, Danny lodges at the Bed & Breakfast of Jim’s daughter Alwyn (Tuppence Middleton), so that she can compete better for the favor of the fishermen. After Danny becomes more and more a part of the fishing community and their relatives, he eventually wonders what success really means.
