A new baby whale grows within her mother with one heartbeat strong and sure. She is born, and together the mother and child sing songs in unison until a whaling vessel surrounds them with harpoons. Tragedy ensues and an expansive look at the many ways whale products have advanced mankind is shown in picture after picture. Then a little girl's heart begins to beat in tune with the whale's and the harmony of life throughout the universe begins to heal and the missing beat begins anew.
