THE FOUNTAIN OF A WHALE
a feature film by PV Lehtinen
in development

A magical-realist drama which combines Scandinavian folklore with the director's characteristic visual style. After surviving a drowning accident in the late 1940's, a young boy no longer utters a word. His old grandmother from the Aland Islands moves in with his family and tells him a fascinating story about her fisherman grandfather who ended up trapped inside of a whale. A silent bond is formed. Many years later the very same boy, now a grandfather himself, is told that his grandchild has a fatal heart disease. Can he save her? And at what cost?
