Ten-year-old Viv is spending Easter Sunday the way she spends every Sunday—working with her dad on his boat while he gives whale-watching tours. While he’s on the upper deck leading the tour, Viv tends to the injured pelican that she and her father cared for at the research center. But a surprise visit from her estranged mother leads Viv to create a darkly symbolic way to mark the day.
