Don McKellar directs this English language remake of the charming 2003 comedy La Grand Seduction, transplanting the chicanery from a tiny village on the north coast of Quebec to the equally picturesque surroundings of Newfoundland. Tickle Cove is a proud fishing community, which has been in gradual decline since the heydays when every man in the village headed out to sea to earn his keep. Village resident Murray French (Brendan Gleeson) is determined to halt the decline and he hopes to persuade a company to build a factory on the island. However, there is a stumbling block: the factory owners need proof that the island has a resident doctor. So Murray and his neighbours woo disgraced medic Paul Lewis (Taylor Kitsch) to their coastal idyll, with a view to persuading the doctor to stay forever. The great and the good of Tickle Cove secretly listen to Paul's telephone conversations with his partner Helen (Anna Hopkins) so they can glean valuable insights to his favourite foods, drink and pastimes. Armed with this inside information, the village folk transform Tickle Cove into Paul's perfect new home. However, Kathleen (Liane Balaban), who runs the post office, urges caution, fearful of the consequences if Paul discovers the truth about the underhand scheme.
