A whale’s logbook.

This adventure of a whale-lady on her long journey across the Pacific Ocean is inspired by a true story. In 2015 scientists measured the journey of a female of the majestic grey whale species. They called her Varvara. She swam a distance of 22,500 kilometres, the longest migration route undertaken by any mammal.

A playful fairy-tale which starts with the birth of Varvara, who will eventually give birth to a whale baby herself covering the entire cycle of life. As she grows and travels the ocean, the whale-girl has lots of adventures. She meets other sea creatures as well as humans. First, she trusts them, but soon she comes to realize that some of them pose a grave danger for whales, as they hunt them despite the worldwide ban.

Humans also use the sea as a container for waste, endangering all its inhabitants. Although it touches on these serious topics, Marka Míková’s narration is filled with joyful charm and imagination. During her long journey Varvara learns to sing the mysterious whale song. She experiences the sea at its calmest and stormiest; she learns what it is to be happy and what it means to be anxious. She approaches everything with vitality and curiosity. After losing her mother she will have to take care of herself and others, including a little clumsy dolphin. In the end Varvara finds great love as well as her destination.

A charming coming-of-age story which also shows the importance of protecting nature in a playful, child-friendly way.
