The Last Ship is set against the demise of the local Wallsend shipbuilding industry and tells the story of a group of unemployed shipyard workers who are inspired to take back their shipyard and build one last ship – not for their former employer, not for the government, but for their own pride and humanity.
Sting: The Last Ship airs on Great Performances, Friday, February 21, 2014 at 9 p.m., ET on PBS (check local listings).
