Brief Explanation

In the 'Ultimate Death Scene', Australian film actor David Field is pursued until the point of exhaustion, shot with an explosive harpoon causing massive internal injuries, dragged violently onto a ship before taking up to an hour to die. Unbeknown to the audience, this is the personification of the horrific final moments of a whale, hunted and slaughtered by whalers. Following the performance, we see harrowing footage of the disturbing reality, as David testifies to the cruelty and inhumanity of the practice, and his support for Sea Shepherd.
