The film follows the story of a journalist (played by Fraser) who travels to Nootka Sound to investigate Luna’s story and becomes personally invested in the whale’s fate. The film also explores themes of grief, redemption, and the complex relationship between humans and animals. The Whale is based on the play of the same name by Samuel D. Hunter, which was inspired by Luna’s real-life story. The play premiered in 2012 and has been produced in several cities in the United States and Canada. The film is set to be released in 2022 and has generated significant buzz among film enthusiasts and animal rights advocates alike.
