Here, however, is something taken from a Los Angeles Times movie review: It’s 1988, an Anchorage news reporter Adam Carlson is in the tiny town of Barrow, Alaska, when he unintentionally discovers a family of three gray whales trapped in the icy waters off shore. Realizing that this could be a huge story that gets him a job in the Lower 48, Adam sends a piece
that gets picked up by the national press, attracting the attention of everyone from his ex-girlfriend / Greenpeace activist, Rachel, to Tom Brokaw and a young White House staffer in President Ronald Reagan’s administration. The whales’ fate quickly becomes a tug-of-war between the environmentalists and the local Inuit tribe, which wants to harvest the whales. When the tribe decides to help the cause, Greenpeace and Big Oil – and even the Soviets – must band together to save the whales.
