In a coastal Maine town, Harry Whitney (Keith Carradine) and his family of animal enthusiasts nurse an ailing seal back to health. All of the Whitneys care deeply for Andre, the abandoned seal, but Harry's young daughter Toni (Tina Majorino) grows particularly close to the animal. Unfortunately, as Andre grows healthy again, his playful antics begin to infuriate the fishermen of the town, and the Whitneys became a target of ridicule. However, Toni and her family stand by their friend.

Screened as part of Maine in the Movies, a statewide festival of films set in Maine.
