Mid-19th century. Northeastern United States. The young orphan Ahab is raised by his aunt, a pious and austere woman married to a dandy who has no qualms about using the whip to discipline the boy. Determined to leave this prison-like existence, Achab escapes by making it appear that he is dead. He then begins a new life, free of all restraints, only to discover his passion for the sea. After having been taken in by a pastor, he enrolls in a naval academy. From then on, he lives only for his greatest passion, the ocean. Eventually becoming the formidable Captain Ahab, he embarks upon a never-ending battle with a mysterious white whale known as Moby Dick. Five people whose paths have crossed with that of Ahab recount his tragic fate, each describing a different stage of his life.
Qui aurait bien pu imaginer que ce jeune garon lisant la Bible dans une cabane de chasse perdue au milieu des bois, deviendrait un jour capitaine de navire baleinier ?
Personne. Et pourtant, de mains tendues en coups reus, Achab grandit et s'empare des ocans. Devenu un capitaine redoutable, il rencontre une baleine blouissante de blancheur... Moby Dick.
