Forced to abandon his musical career, Coleman finds himself in the company
of ghosts as he struggles to move his father's sailing boat out of dry
dock. There is the ghost of his teacher, a black jazz musician living
quietly on the edge of a predominantly white town; his grandfather, a rum
runner and pirate of the Great Lakes; and his first love, a woman unafraid
of the past. And then there is also the memory of the ill-fated affair
which led him to abandon his music
