When a water main bursts in rain-starved Los Angeles, seventeen-year-old adoptee Maddie and filmmaker Aiden’s worlds collide in a whirlpool of love, loss, and fate. Maddie is an artist who creates collages from photographs and castoff scraps she saves. But she’s also a numbers person, and destiny has never fit into her rational world, where scientific probability has always proven to be the only thing she can count on. Aiden is haunted by the death of his younger brother, and by the life-changing decision he must now make – whether or not to keep his baby daughter. Together, Maddie and Aiden find that art and numbers, a mission to save endangered whales, and a worn-out copy of Moby Dick all add up to the mystery of meant-to-be. Inspired by the true story of a Greenpeace mission to save whales in the Southern Ocean.
