From the producers of ADVANTAGES OF TRAVELLING BY TRAIN and COLOSSAL comes a mixture of thriller, noir, sci-fi and fantasy from uprising director with a unique voice Pablo Hernando. Ingrid García-Jonsson (Cannes’ BEAUTIFUL YOUTH) portrays a contract killer with a special power related to a strange creature from an outer world which makes her untraceable. Ramon Barea (having worked with directors like Farhadi) plays a gangster which controls the port depths. Only one can survive. A WHALE will plunge us into a dark and liquid world, where the surface hides unknown mysteries. What if Nicolas Winding Refn had directed LE SAMURAI?
When Ingrid pulls the trigger, her victims don’t know who has shot. Her ability to infiltrate and disappear without leaving a trace makes her an unrelenting killer. But that power comes from another world, a place inhabited by creatures, making her less and less human every time she uses it. When Melville, a smuggler who traffics extremely strange goods, wants to kill a powerful rival businessman who wants to gain control of the port from him, he knows that only Ingrid can finish the job. However, everything changes when Mellvile discovers Ingrid’s secret and her mysterious connection to the sea. Nothing will stop him from obtaining the most valuable piece of his unique collection.
