Like generations before them, Tilghman Island's watermen get up every morning and head out to wrest a living from the Chesapeake Bay; "it's in their blood." But increasingly they find it a challenge to make a living. As the Bay's bounty declines, regulation increases, and the cost of operating a workboat escalates, watermen turn to other livelihoods and their wives find office jobs to supplement their family's income and provide health benefits. Another Dawn: Tilghman in Transition picks up the watermen's story where it left off in Growing up on Tilghman, the previous film produced by the Tilghman Watermen's Museum. How do they deal with all the changes? How do they adapt? What do they see as the future for this true watermen's community? What remains clear through all of their words, however, is the generosity, ingenuity, and beauty that distinguish this special community.

Not so long ago, Tilghman's Island was a community with few amenities and no fences - where children roamed freely, neighbors took care of each other, and families bonded together to wrest a living from the bountiful but challenging Chesapeake Bay. It was a community that valued hard work, ingenuity, good humor, and the beauty and power of the natural world.
Produced by the Tilghman Island Museum, Growing up on Tilghman takes a fond look at the history of this unique Chesapeake waterman's community. Filled with beautiful footage of the Bay and archival images from years gone by, Growing Up on Tilghman also introduces viewers to 11 unforgettable residents as they recall their unique heritage and discuss the challenges of sharing it with future generations.
