- Synopsis / Plot
- Nantucket. In 1850, this little island off the east coast of the United States is the capital of American whaling. Sailors, traders, harpooners – they all hope to make big money on land or sea – or at least to have big adventures. Ishmael sees his dream of a whaling voyage come true when he joins the crew of the Pequod, a sailing vessel leaving port in Nantucket. Unbeknownst to Ishmael and the mates, the Pequod’s monomaniacal Captain Ahab is taking them all on a mad and personal mission to slay the great whale Moby Dick—an obsession that will open their eyes to the wonder and spectacle of man, of beast, and the inescapable nature of both in this epic retelling of Herman Melville’s masterpiece.
