Synopsis

Smell the salt spray! Hear the crash of the waves on the rocks! Listen to the sea shanties of the fishermen and the song of the whale!

A stranded whale brings excitement to the forgotten fishing village of Farnaway, turning it into the center of a frenzied media circus. The bored youngsters of the village gain a new sense of purpose from the mission to save the whale, but their elders are tempted by greed to take a deadlier path. Unless Farnaway can heal its generation divide, the whale will die…

“uplifting, funny, sweet… a really attractive piece of work.” – Opera Now, UK
