The Breaking Point

There's nothing more deadly than a gentle man pushed to the breaking point! One of novelist Ernest Hemingway's greatest works comes to the screen in this story of a World War II veteran who has fallen on hard times and discovers exactly how far he will go in a desperate attempt to keep from losing his charter boat.

Now, in an even more desperate situation, he agrees to ferry a gang of robbers out of the country.
