A Quest for Revenge! Ishmael, a young school teacher, signs up on a whaling ship to seek adventure. With his unexpeced friend Queequeg, a cannibal harpooner, he joins the Pequod, captained by the mysterious Ahab. But Ahab is only interested in seeking revenge upon the great white whale, Moby Dick, who took off Ahab's leg on an earlier trip. It's a hair raising whale hunt where Ishmael's search for adventure turns into a desperate wish to survive.
