Still image from The Essex: The True Story of Moby Dick

Draws on the accounts of two survivors and the research of scholars to bring the incredible story of the doomed ship to life. Recounts the attack of a bull sperm whale that sank the ship and records the travails of the crew's desperate attempt to sail to safety in three small whaleboats. The handful who survived did so by reverting to the "law of the sea."
