In the tiny town of Barrow, Alaska, a "save the whales" tale turns into an inspiring and unlikely international collaboration in this "delightful family movie" (McClatchy Tribune News Service). With three gray whales trapped by ice forming near Barrow, it's up to determined Greenpeace activist Drew Barrymore and dedicated TV reporter John Krasinski to find some way to save them. What follows is an incredible effort by everyone from local tribesman to world leaders to broker a path to safety for the helpless creatures.
