When a small pod of killer whales surfaces just offshore of Lumber Landing—a small British Columbia fishing community—it’s not just the fish that don’t know what to do. The whales’ arrival coincides with a fishing magazine ad offering $100,000 for a killer whale in good condition for an American theme park. Jamie Tidd, a fourteen-year-old boy, and his father Perry thought it would be nearly impossible to capture a whale. However, it’s after they easily trap one on Wilwilli Cove that difficulties arise. Do they release the whale to take part in salmon season—the most financially rewarding season of the year—or do they keep it and hope to cash in?
