Marek awakes inside a giant whale. What’s more, that’s also where he meets every person he loved throughout his life: his wife, who had been taken from him by the sea years before, and his crazy father, who demands to be referred to as King of the Oceans. Besides them, there are other equally charismatic individuals living inside the giant mammal. Everyone is curious to learn how exactly Marek came about to join them. How did he get inside?
