Set on the rugged western coast of Vancouver Island and narrated by Ryan Reynolds, THE WHALE describes what happens when Luna, a baby orca, gets separated from his family and unexpectedly starts making contact with people along a scenic fjord called Nootka Sound. Because orcas are highly social beings who spend their lives traveling with their pods, Luna attempts to find a surrogate family among the area residents, much to their delight. But as word spreads about Luna, people become torn between their love for the lonely young whale and fears that human contact might harm him. As Luna's determination and charm change human lives all around him and make the unexpected the norm on Nootka Sound, the film becomes an unforgettable narrative about the mysteries, the dangers - and the promise - of friendship across forbidden boundaries.
