The Whaler Boy is a hugely engaging comedy drama set in the bleak Russian tundra by the Bering Strait. Teenager Leksha works as a whale hunter in a town where there's little else to do and a noticeable absence of women. The internet is a new arrival and Leksha starts to obsess over a beautiful blonde woman he finds on a webcam site. His obsession leads to conflict with his closest friend and a foolhardy mission to head out towards Alaska in search of his newfound love.
