Whale is an independently produced narrative series created by Marco North starring his nine year old daughter. Eva plays a prisoner of war in an alternate, dystopian past where there are no cel phones, no computers, and countless rules. In Eden, the people speak a mashup of Russian, French and Japanese. (English is strictly forbidden.)

 

A host of characters offer us glimpses into the realities of their daily lives. Every day is structured, guided by a series of announcements – when to eat, when to exercise, when to hide under the table during an attack and when to make a pledge each morning. Conformity is the rule, but everyone interprets these rules differently.

As a refugee, Eva relies on her imagination to cope with the chaos she constantly encounters, sometimes unleashing her greatest fears as well.
