WHAT IS THE FILM ABOUT?
“The Ghost and the Whale” tells the story of Joseph Hawthorne, a man who went off to sea with the love of his life and came back to town (Bodega Bay) alone. Accused of murder, Joseph was found not guilty after a long and grueling trial that was nationally covered. Now, Joseph questions his own innocence, because at the time of the death of his wife, he was suffering a bi-polar episode. One year later, acclaimed journalist Ed Hale has been called to Bodega to cover Joseph’s mysterious story. What he encounters is a hornet’s nest of uncontrollable consequences.
