Spring has come and George sails with his grandfather to an abandoned fishing outport so the old man can visit his wife's grave. On their return, they are caught in a fierce storm. They pull their boat onto an ice floe and take shelter under the boat. As the ice breaks up under them, the old man shows the courage and dignity he wants his grandson to remember.
