The seaside village of Hermanus is overrun with whale-watchers, but once the tourists have left the Whale Caller lingers at the shoreline, wooing a whale he has named Sharisha with cries from a kelp horn. When Sharisha fails to appear for weeks on end the whale caller frets like a jealous lover – all the while oblivious to the fact that the town drunk Saluni, a woman who wears a silk dress and red stiletto heels, is infatuated with him. The two misfits eventually fall in love.
