October, 1839. The Pequod is due to sail out of Nantucket and her skipper, one Captain Ahab, is in need of a crew.

Seeking fortune and adventure, a humble schoolmaster named Ishmael ships aboard, joining a company charged with one task: to wreak revenge on the white whale that lost Ahab his leg—the infamous Moby-Dick.

Ahab’s single-minded pursuit ends up consuming Ishmael, the crew and the Pequod itself.
