It's the early 1900s. Harvey is rich, spoiled, and ten years old. When he is expelled from his private boarding school, his father takes Harvey on an ocean voyage. While the ship is sailing off the Grand Banks, Harvey falls overboard. Miraculously rescued by a Gloucester fishing boat, Harvey demands that the three month trip be cut short so that he can be taken to a U.S. city. The demands are ignored and when Harvey refuses to help with work on the boat, he is told that if he doesn't work he won't eat. On the voyage, Harvey finds a new world of friendship and maturity.
Captains Courageous shows the hard life of fishermen in the first half of the 20th century. The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide illustrates how to confirm and enhance the character development lessons of the film.
