The Finest Hours is a historical drama that follows the disaster of the SS Pendleton in 1952. The script for the film was adapted from the 2009 book The Finest Hours: The True Story of the U.S. Coast Guard's Most Daring Sea Rescue and a number of interviews with some of the survivors. Two sides of the disaster are shown. One side follows the coastguard stationed in Chatham, Massachusetts. While many of the coastguard members are documented, this half of the story focused on one man, Bernie Webber, and his desire to get married to his fiance, Miriam. On the day he was supposed to ask for his wedding day off, a large storm blew into the area. After a large team went out to rescue another ship, the coastguard received news of the SS Pendleton. Webber was tasked with building a team of four, including himself, and saving the survivors on board. The other half of the film tells the crew aboard the SS Pendleton, which was split in half off the New England coast during the storm. While one half of the ship sank, the other half, and the remaining crew members, came up with a plan to save their own lives.
