A whale swims into the river and tells a young boy the dark history between whales and man. Is she safe to return home and can a young boy restore the relationship? The boy says sorry and the whale disappears. Is it too late? She's then seen swimming with her calf. 'It is safe,' she says. 'Welcome home,' says the boy. 'Welcome home,' whispers the mountain.

Sounds very moving - congrats again Christina!
