Bayo Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this family drama from Canada, Bayo (Stephen McGrath) is a ten-year-old boy who lives with his mother Sharon ([[Performer~P56591~Patricia Phillips~patriciaphillips]]) in Tickle Cove, a small fishing village near Newfoundland's Bonavista Bay. Bayo's grandfather Philip ([[Performer~P122174~Ed McNamara~edmcnamara]]) is the captain of a fishing boat whose exploits have made him something of a local celebrity; after 60 years on the water, Philip has decided to retire and move in with Bayo and Sharon. But Sharon is considering a move to Toronto, while Bayo would prefer to stay in Tickle Cove, and Philip finds that he's once again hearing the call of the sea. Eventually, the small family must learn to compromise with each others wants and needs. Bayo was based on the novel Lightly by Chipman Hall. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
