The Whale is a touching, heart-warming story about an Orca, Luna, befriending humans. Luna got separated from his family while still young, which is very unusual. He spent five years in Nootka Sound with no other whales, only people. The community embraced Luna’s longing to be friendly until the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans placed a ban on anyone who petted or even looked at Luna to be charged a hefty fine.
The Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nations believed Luna was a reincarnation of a former chief. I believe Luna had a special message he was trying to share with mankind.
The Whale is produced by Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson and narrated by Ryan Reynolds. For more info, visit http://www.thewhalemovie.com/faq.php.
