Captain Paul Watson has been on a crusade to save the oceans for 40 years, and he isn’t about to stop now. Through the life and convictions of this notorious activist, director Trish Dolman crafts an epic tale of the birth of the modern environmental movement and the founding of Greenpeace and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

Part high-octane adventure, the film follows Watson and his crew as they hunt down a Japanese whaling fleet in the vast expanse and stunning beauty of Antarctica’s Southern Ocean and seamlessly segues in and out of a wealth of archival footage from decades of confrontational activism around the world.

In-depth interviews with Watson, Bob Hunter, Patrick Moore and Farley Moway, among others, capture the heroics, the ego, the disputed tactics and the urgency of Watson’s mission.
