The lifesaving storm season spanning September to May has started. The surfmen, predecessors of the coast guard who boarded sinking ships that wrecked in sight of shorelines, have already encountered losses and are soon to face more. In the Outer Banks of NC, an isolated, rugged landscape shaped by storms, Surfman Anson Scarborough chases a threat beyond the patrol area along with the station cook. They interrupt a man luring a ship aground that has dire consequences for Anson; it's the father of his long lost wife who ran away to the mainland. While Anson navigates the chaos of the lifesaving season, his former wife flees Baltimore with the harbor police in pursuit of whom they believe is the queen of the oyster pirates (pillagers of oyster beds under the cloak of the night). Her exodus leaves her heading for Outer Banks and on a course for fateful encounters with her estranged husband and the cook who is newly promoted to the all-Black lifesaving station.
