On the outskirts of Mormon Country, Idaho, a six-hundred pound recluse (Tony Award winner Shuler Hensley) hides away in his apartment eating himself to death.
Desperate to reconnect with his long-estranged daughter, he reaches out to her, only to find a viciously sharp-tongued and wildly unhappy teen. Big-hearted and fiercely funny, THE WHALE tells the story of a man’s last chance at redemption, and of finding beauty in the most unexpected places.
