Enjoying the clear blue sky or the dazzling ultramarine of the ocean may not be enough for retired Professor Whale anymore. He has written letters to unknown recipients across the ocean and is eagerly awaiting responses. One letter comes from an adolescent whale whose grandfather knew Professor Whale. Other responses come from Professor Whale's friends themselves who decided to return for a reunion when they received Professor Whale's letters. Inspired by his young pen pal, Professor Whale and his friends reinstate the Whale Point Olympics where the new generation learn that it's more about friendship and supporting each other than taking home the gold medal.
