Cut to several pothead whale fins, glimpses of the whales just under the surface. Several LSs of fleet of row boats herding large number of pothead whales in towards the shore. Numerous shots, from various distances, shore-based and from a boat, of men in dories herding whales towards the shore, stabbing at them with harpoons, of whales thrashing mightily in shallow water, being hit by harpoons, children on shore finishing off whales with spears, etc.
