SYNOPSIS: Chloe  lost her mother to addiction several years ago and has been raised ever  since under the not so tender care of her extended family in a small  fishing village on the East Coast. She has learned to live like a stray  and has a lively mind inclined to game the system when bored.  Her Uncle  Sheldon lets her live in a room off his lobster pound and recognizing  her talents for numbers, gets her involved in some of the increasingly risky areas of his business. Area 33 is about trust, lobsters and the search for signs of intelligent life one summer at the Shag Harbour UFO Museum.
