Adam is a news reporter who is trying to get his hands on a news story that will give him a chance to move back to the main land, when he notices a small family of grey whales trapped under the rapidly freezing Arctic ice. He sends out his footage, which attracts media attention immediately, along with his ex-girlfriend Rachel a Greenpeace activist who does everything to help these animals. They ask the help from the army, and the city starts to dig the ice to lead the whales to the open sea, but in the end they need help from the Russian ice breaker ship to help them out. Although the whole point was for Adam to escape this small town, he realizes that fame is worth nothing in comparison to helping others.
It isn't an Oscar winning movie, true, but it is also very underrated. I do think you should check it out, its a great story and you cannot be disappointed, trust me!
Until the next item on my list!
