Jo Parker is a writer who has lost touch. The sales of his last book were a disaster, critical and commercial. She needs a breakthrough and her publisher is not happy with her first draft of “Sealed With a Kiss,” featuring a navy hero. For her career in balance, Jo undertakes to do an immersive research with Colin Shaw, who runs a military training camp. As Jo embarks on the strenuous regimen alongside aspiring Seals and Marines, she discovers abilities she did not know she had and contributes to her team in ways no one expected. From their rocky beginnings, writer and sailor develop a mutual respect and perhaps something else – but can art really mimic life?
