As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.

About 100 YEARS OF MOVIES
This series presents films from every decade the Strand has been in operation, chosen for how they represented the filmmaking style and perspectives of their time. In addition to well-known films, the titles will include lesser-known, high quality releases that have been overlooked, as well as underrepresented movies and directors. The films were curated by Alicia Malone, a host on Turner Classic Movies (TCM); and Strand House Manager Liz McLeod, also a film historian. Each film will be introduced by Malone or McLeod, or a special guest presenter.
