As the narrative of two brothers who have grown apart and who strike a risky deal with a Boston criminal gang unfolds in “Finalkind,” viewers are taken on an exciting adventure.
In addition to putting their father and brothers in danger, this choice draws them into an enigmatical relationship with a young lady. Crime, family relationships, and the surprising bonds that form when paths cross are all intricately explored in the film.
Former college student Charlie stops by the scallop fishing operation of his older half-brother Tom Eldrige while in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
Reluctantly agreeing, he begs Tom to accompany him on his impending fishing trip after becoming disillusioned with his regimented lifestyle. As they set sail on Ray’s yacht, the Harmony, Nunes, also known as “Nunesy,” Costa, a family man, and drug user Skeemo introduce Charlie to the group. An explosion on stormy seas sinks the Harmony hours into the cruise; the crew barely escapes.
As the five of them celebrate their rescue the next morning at a local watering hole, Charlie crosses paths with Mabel, a low-level heroin dealer. Gary Sykes, his well-off father, pursues him and makes polite attempts to talk him out of fishing.
Tom and his narcissistic boss get into an argument about who is more competent, which escalates into a fight and ultimately results in Tom’s dismissal after the brothers pay a visit to Tom’s workplace.
Tom unwillingly agrees to accompany his elderly father Ray on a dredging expedition when he approaches him later in life and asks to use his vessel, the Finestkind, instead of himself.
Afterwards, during a home party that Costa is hosting, Tom lets everyone know about the job. While Mabel is taking Charlie on a drug run, he meets Charlie’s apprehensive mother.
He has a wild night with Mabel at her flat when the meeting goes south. When they wake up late the following day, they find out that Tom will shortly depart without them.
In reaction, Mabel quickly races Charlie to the port, and they just make it to the Finestkind before it sets sail. Tom makes the stealthy decision to take the boat fishing in Canadian waters in hopes of catching more profitable fish while at sea.
The gamble almost pays out, but the boat becomes stuck in its fisheries dredge just as a Canadian plane flies over, cutting short their adventure.
When American authorities seize the ship after she returns to port, the Finestkind’s crew is inconsolable. They decide to inform Ray about what happened, and then they find out that he is in the hospital with terminal stomach cancer, which is the real reason he gave up the yacht.
Tom goes to his previous employers, who scornfully turned him down, to help pay the $100,000 punishment that was attached to the boat’s release, since he doesn’t want his dad to die without it.
In an effort to alleviate their hardship, Mabel enlists the help of Weeks, her mother’s business partner, to smuggle heroin for the crew on a single occasion. Even though everyone on the crew is on board, Tom still has a sneaking suspicion that someone is watching him.
An aircraft drops the heroin down at the designated area, and the crew sets sail toward there. After making it back to Port, the two brothers go off on their own to meet Weeks, but they are ambushed and captured by an opposing drug gang, who then take the heroin.
Tom, upon realizing they have been duped, accuses Mabel of betraying them, which escalates into an argument, which Ray happens to see. So, after kidnapping Costa’s pregnant wife, Weeks confronts the group at their house. He threatens to murder them if they don’t provide the drug by the next morning and admits to assaulting Mabel.
Tom vanishes when the team assists Costa’s wife after they go. Ray confronts Charlie as he is looking for him, and Charlie reveals their dilemma. Nunesy informs Charlie the next morning that Tom has brought a gun to see Skeemo.
After Charlie discovers that Skeemo betrayed him, he rushes to his location, reaching Tom just before he is ready to put him to death. But Charlie persuades him otherwise, and they decide to take a risk instead.
Meanwhile, Ray shows up at the meeting spot where Weeks and the crew met, offering Weeks $15,000 to leave the group alone. Ray shoots and kills Weeks as the brothers approach when Weeks refuses and mocks him. Tom, visibly distressed, hears Ray say that he would risk everything to save him.
