This short documentary follows Lisa Levins, the lifeboat navigator from Clogherhead in Ireland on a rescue operation on the sea. Lisa is a widow who lost her husband to cancer and her passion is saving other people's lives. She is a single mom raising a little boy, conceived through IVF after his dad passed away. Lisa has a full time job and she is on 24/7 call duty for RNLI Lifeboat Station. In the documentary she speaks frankly about the family tragedy and about her role in a very male dominated environment.
