Will Jackson is hiding out, a city boy reluctantly staying with his uncle in small town New Zealand while he struggles to recover from a brutal attack and the aftermath of a humiliating Youtube clip gone viral. After he discovers a young abandoned orca his life is further thrown into chaos, when he rallies to help protect it against hostile, threatening interests. As Will's story unfolds, it is interspersed with the last song of The Chronicle, the Orca's reflection as he looks back over his life and his connection to Will, and passes on to others the lessons he has learnt about human behaviour and how to live a good life. His unique voice issues a love song to the planet and celebrates the special bond that builds between him and this very human boy through the love of song
