1802. The ancient seafaring town of Concarneau clings to the perilous Breton Coast of France and endures Napoleons financial and cultural persecution. After a cholera epidemic, Captain Louis Bedard, master mariner, resolves to hire a live-in doctorMore1802. The ancient seafaring town of Concarneau clings to the perilous Breton Coast of France and endures Napoleons financial and cultural persecution. After a cholera epidemic, Captain Louis Bedard, master mariner, resolves to hire a live-in doctor from faraway Paris.

The only way to entice such a man is to offer a years advance salary, and the only way to amass that much coin is to engage in smuggling. The risk is high- capture by the Coast Guard almost guarantees life in prison.Bedard confides in the Mayor, who suggests a plan: Hell provide the boat, Bedard will hire the crew. At first Bedard is reluctant, but its quick money, and temporary. On the dark of each new moon, under an alias, Bedard slips the wharf - right under the nose of his arch-enemy, the young and devious Coast Guard Lieutenant LaMotte, a despised newcomer.

Eventually LaMotte captures and imprisons Bedard, but because of a legal loophole Bedard cannot be prosecuted until he reveals his true name. Bedard resists LaMottes daily pressure, while Bedards secret partner grows impatient and threatens to expose him and hire a new partner.Bedards only joy is daily visits from Nicole, his unmarried daughter, who brings hot meals and gossip, and is unaware of her fathers secret identity.

One day, she brings good news: she has finally fallen in love. Bedards happiness curdles to horror as she blissfully describes the man who will be his son-in-law.
