"We ain't pigs, lads, we ain't pigs. No brown aleing, no being sick over the wall, no signs of wear and tear - we'll show our wives we can be civilised without them."
Three miners plan a blameless weekend fishing for cod off Whitby. Their arrival in the port town is met with near bemusement by the proprietor of the guest-house they are pointed towards: she's never catered for a fishing party before, and certainly not out of season!
All three are keen to get out on their private trip to a nearby cod hotspot with a local fisherman, but it's not long before their journey on the open waves takes a turn for the decidedly odd.
