Raised in a remote seaside village, Thomas Witka Just marries Ruth,
his beloved since infancy. But an ill-fated decision to fight in
Vietnam changes his life forever: cut off from his Native American
community, he fathers a child with another woman. When he returns
home a hero, he finds his tribe in conflict over the decision to
hunt a whale, both a symbol of spirituality and rebirth and a means
of survival. In the end, he reconciles his two existences, only to
see tragedy befall the son he left behind.
