The Whale: Revenge from the Deep | 2014
Thomas Nickerson reminisces about his emotional maiden voyage on board a doomed ship. Just a naive cabin boy with dreams of matching his grandfather's bravery, he recounts days and nights battling brutal storms, crippling waves, the scorching sun and grueling hunger. After "The Essex" sinks, the men are forced into a gripping struggle for survival, and eventually, desperation and starvation lead to cannibalism. The hunters turn their slaughter upon each other, and only then do they feel the full weight of one whale's revenge.
