Movie Info

Saving Luna is the true story of Luna, a baby male orca who gets separated from his family in a remote Canadian fjord. When the friendly orca seeks companionship from people, he becomes beloved and feared. People can't figure out what to do. To native people, he's a chief's spirit. To boaters, he's a goofy friend. To conservationists, he's a cause. To scientists, he's trouble. To officials, he's a danger. To the filmmakers, he's a lovable streetkid whale. As conflict and tragedy stain the waters, Luna becomes a symbol of the world's wildest beauty: wonderful to know, hard to save.
