It’s 1976 in Long Island where Hunt, Lozo, Jack and Cons are clam diggers at a time when the bay is being taken away from them by a corporate clamming outfit. While each has his sideline -- Hunt is an amateur photographer, Cons deals drugs, Jack is a relentless womanizer and Lozo specializes in procreating with his wife. Their dead-end existence is shaken up by the death of Hunt's father, who worked himself ragged on the bay, trying to make a living. After the funeral, Hunt starts hanging out with Zoey, a rich kid from "The City" who's slumming it out east, while Hunt's sister Gina gets involved with Jack. After a night spent in jail, resulting from a bar fight, the four guys finally decide to move on, in their fashion. They give Hunt's father (well, his boat, actually) a proper funeral, Lozo gets a "real" job and Hunt packs up and heads west, chasing Zoey and his dream of becoming a professional shutterbug. This movie is rated R for language, drug use and some sexual content.
