It is 1980 and New York City is steamrolling towards a decade of
unprecedented social and economic change. But Matthew Trekowski,
(Trek), lives a peripheral life of detached despondency. He
charters his decrepit sailing "yacht" the Ventura from a scruffy
marina in Staten Island earning barely enough to keep self and home
afloat. Trek and his symbiotic boat are hopelessly deteriorating
when a disastrous charter segues into opportunity-or so he thinks.
Soon, Trek finds himself operating out of Pier 11 at the foot of
Manhattan's Wall Street. His customers are well-heeled tourists-and
a hard playing white-collar set who welcome a new venue for cocaine
and alcohol-fueled parties. Of perceived necessity, Trek then
becomes enmeshed in a criminal subculture, itself within the
framework of a city and harbor shot through with corruption.
Suddenly he finds that his rational-the need of his own survival,
conflicts with morals long forgotten. Trek needs to make
choices-which, in the past, have usually been wrong.
