Jamie and his fiancee Bev are doing just fine in their basement apartment in Chapel Arm, Newfoundland. Bev works as a beautician, Jamie has a job as a "dick-picker" at the local fish plant--and the young couple are expecting a baby.
But when Jamie's childhood sweetheart, Dodi, returns unexpectedly from the mainland, their small-town world is rocked. Complicating matters is Dodi's alcoholic uncle Art, who has just torched the house he's been living in--and everyone in town knows he did it.
The characters navigate their way through a minefield of love, obsession, sex, loyalty, and betrayal as they seek to reconcile the past with their present reality. The raw emotion of Chapel Arm is balanced with a full measure of Newfoundland humour, and a powerful sense of language.
