A Wonderful and Beautiful Story Ending
An extraordinary and beautiful, touching story to watch. This young whale is caught in an impossible tangle of nets. Her fins are pins to her side and her breathing is terribly difficult and labored. She is dying a prolonged and terrifying death. A small boat finds her, and the men work desperately against the clock try and save her.
The men radio for help, but none is forthcoming. They take matters into their own hands. Time is running out. The young whale grows more increasingly desperate, frightened and exhausted. But, he contains herself with extraordinary patience as the men work feverishly to cut the nets with one, small knife. It is difficult and laborious work.
At last! The whale is free. He cannot contain herself. He jumps and leaps for joy for over an hour before the small boat that saves him. Her ecstasy is boundless. It seems he is showing them his incredible happiness, relief, gratitude.
The men finally must say good bye. They are deeply moved and touched. This story will stay with them for the rest of their lives. They are forever changed.
