Drama 1m/1f It’s a splendid moon-filled night in Coley’s Point in 1926. Eighteen-year-old Jacob Mercer has returned from Toronto to the tiny Newfoundland outport, hoping to win back his former sweetheart, Mary Snow. But Mary has become engaged to wealthy Jerome McKenzie, and she is still hurt and bewildered by Jacob’s abrupt departure a year earlier.

You’ll not soon forget them.” -Hollywood Drama-Logue “Salt-Water Moon Shines.” -Philadelphia Daily News
