What do fishermen do in winter?
George Sprague lives and works in Buck's Harbor, Maine. He is widely known for his "cellar" (affectionately called the whine cellar), where people gather to talk, make lobster traps, share stories and pass the long months until spring. It is a spontaneous theater, with a lively cast of characters who delight in playing themselves. Their skill and ingenuity in self-dramatization make for unexpected scenes and encounters that sometimes include the filmmaker herself.
