Synopsis of In The Heart of the Sea
Set in 1820, a whaling company, Essex set sail in search of whale oil which was in demand in the market. The ship was also carrying a crew member named Nickerson who was 14 years old.
On the voyage, the ship's owner also hired a veteran whaler named Owen Chase and a captain named George Pollard, an experienced sailor from a whaling family who was jealous of Chase's skills and popularity.
In the middle of the journey, Chase and Pollard clashed. Pollard takes the ship into a storm against Chase's advice and ends up putting the whole ship in danger.
After a heated argument, Chase and Pollard agreed to put their differences aside. This finally encouraged the crew to be more enthusiastic about hunting whales.
Three months on, the Essex ship has not gotten any results. Pollard realized that no whales inhabit the Atlantic Ocean. He also took his ship through Cape Horn to the Pacific Ocean and wished luck.
Arriving in Atacames, Ecuador, they met a Spanish captain who informed them that his crew had found an area 2,000 miles to the west inhabited by dozens of whales.
But he warned them there were even large white whales that could destroy ships. He even admitted that he lost six of his men.
The story made Pollard and Chase even more excited for an expedition to the west. They even ignored the threat of the giant white whale.
When they arrived at their destination, bad things happened to their ship. A large white whale attacked and damaged their ship. Now, Pollard and Chase must rack their brains to save their team from the savage battle.
