The story involves a tiny town in need of a doctor in order to secure a much-needed factory contract. When one does show up, the townspeople, led by a fisherman (Gleeson), do everything they can to convince the doctor that their town is a paradise tailor-made for him.

The movie is an English-language remake of a 2003 French-Canadian film named Le grande seduction.

eOne already has the rights for Canada and the U.K.
