The village of Lamalera in Indonesia is one of the last places on earth where whaling is allowed. For over 600 years, villagers have hunted whales and dolphins. It is subsistence hunting, authorized by the international community because it has always been done in the traditional manner in rowboats. But in recent years the outboard motor has altered their hunting methods and dramatically increased the pressure on threatened marine species. How far are we prepared to tolerate hunting endangered species in the name of tradition? A challenging and disturbing adventure that poses difficult questions.
