Richard Lindsay or The Whale is the story of a passive English teacher unable to cope with the aftermath of a traumatic childhood event. Richards becomes entangled in an escalating conflict with a narcissistic teenager, who also happens to be the daughter of the principal.

The film was shot on location in Cobourg, Port Hope, and Peterborough, Ontario with the help of a small dedicated crew and a group of talented actors from the region. It has recently wrapped post-production and is being submitted to local, regional, and international festivals.
