When pirates kidnapped Capt. Richard Phillips, Alison Kosakowski was sent to Vermont to help his family cope with the media. She fell for the family, for Vermont and for a local farmer.

"Missed the Boat" by Modest Mouse; "Mami Gato" by Medeski, Martin and Wood; "Camptown Races" by Dave Brubeck; and an untitled track by Martín Chávez.
