Focused on one of the most senseless resource-based disasters in our province’s history, RIG is the story of the Ocean Ranger, an oil rig that capsized and sank during a fearsome storm on the North Atlantic on Valentine’s Day 1982. This tragedy still has a profound resonance fifty years later, with commemorations taking place annually to honour the 84 men who were lost. RIG powerfully embraces the verbatim style to distill a retelling of events around that fateful night, with voices of their families, friends and colleagues as contributing authors of this piece. Many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians remember that dreadful storm, but weather was not the only thing that sank the Ranger. In an intimate journey through grief and sadness, RIG searches for reconciliation among the victims' families and those who risked their own lives to help those on the Ocean Ranger.
