Movie Info

This full-blooded saga of the 19th-century whaling industry focuses on tough old salt Captain Bering Joy and his grandson Jed. Anxious to embark upon a life on the sea, Jed aligns himself with Joy's first mate. The captain disdainfully regards Dan as one of the inferior "new breed" of whalers.
