A highly entertaining, yet intelligent, film about the demarcations between need, desire, greed and envy. Magic and miracles happen when the lady who inherits the big whale sleeps with someone in that fully furnished and lighted, dead animal, the guy gets a wish of his fulfilled. One by one, everyone falls for Maria Shrader's charms and their own greed, as the whale becomes a brothel.
