A Lobster Tale is a heartwarming comedy-drama movie that tells the story of Cody Brewer (played by Colm Meaney), a struggling fisherman who desperately tries to save his small fishing village in Maine from losing its only source of income, lobsters. The movie revolves around Cody's efforts to fight against the big corporations that are taking over the fishing industry and trying to replace lobster with cheaper seafood alternatives.

The film sets the scene by introducing us to Cody, a middle-aged fisherman who has been struggling to make ends meet since his wife passed away. Cody's only companion is his beloved dog, Bailey, who is always by his side during his daily fishing trips. Despite his best efforts, Cody is unable to catch enough lobsters to pay his bills and is constantly being threatened with foreclosure by the bank.

When Cody discovers that a large corporation is planning to build a massive lobster farm in his village, he takes it upon himself to rally the locals and protest against the project. Cody's determination to save his village soon catches the attention of the media, and he becomes the face of the resistance. Along the way, Cody meets a wealthy lawyer, Devereaux (played by Alberta Watson), who is visiting the village on vacation. Though they initially have a rocky start, Cody and Devereaux soon become unlikely allies in their quest to save the village.

As the days go by, Cody's campaign against the lobster farm gains momentum, and he attracts the support of a local Native American tribe led by Noname (played by Graham Greene). Noname and his tribe join Cody's fight to save the village and provide valuable support and resources to bolster the campaign.

With the clock ticking, Cody and his team must come up with a plan to stop the construction of the lobster farm before it's too late. The movie takes the audience on an emotional journey as Cody faces numerous challenges and setbacks along the way. The story is filled with several heartwarming moments, particularly with Cody's relationship with Bailey, which injects just the right amount of humor and charm into the movie.

The film's cast delivers strong performances, particularly Colm Meaney, who carries the movie with his portrayal of the determined and lovable Cody. Alberta Watson and Graham Greene give solid supporting performances, and the trio shares excellent on-screen chemistry.
