Samuel of the Sea

2015, 8:22

Left upon a lighthouse doorstep as a baby and raised by the gnarled sea-dog, Ignatius, the only life Samuel knows is the sea. When Samuel must venture into the world, he quickly learns he is a fish out of water. When the sea calls, at the depths of the ocean, Samuel will discover his destiny.
