The Scilly Isles in 1914, and history repeats itself when a school of narwhals attempt to beach themselves on the shore one night. It's left to the eccentric old Birdman (Schofield) and two children to persuade the villagers to avoid a repetition of events that sixty years ago resulted in slaughter. Reasonably intelligent children's fare starring a very convincing fake whale.
