Abstract:

F. Murray Abraham stars in this full-cast dramatisation. Tired of life, Ishmael seeks adventure on the world's oceans and sets sail on the Pequod for a 3-year whaling voyage.

In a stirring speech, he reveals his interest is not in commercial whaling but finding the White Whales known as Moby Dick who bit off his leg. First Mate Starbuck dissents, but he cannot compete with Ahab's charismatic leadership over the crew, and the ship embarks on its fatal mission.
