In "Typhoon," a storm upends a captain's complacency, hurling him and his crew into a terrifying battle with nature. "Amy Foster" tells the story of an Eastern European immigrant shipwrecked off the coast of England, and his ultimately doomed love affair with the dim-witted Amy Foster. In "Falk," the protagonist harbors a terrible secret that inhibits his ability to confront the woman he loves and find the wife he longs for. And in "To-morrow," the son of a retired sea captain, who has been waiting years for his boy to come home, finally returns, but only because he is destitute and needs money.
