The documentary sees Ali examine the global fishing industry - and while there are many harrowing moments, one scene in particular, towards the end of the film, has left viewers devastated.

After being tipped off about a whaling hunt in the Faroe Islands, Ali and the team head down to Hvannasund, a village located on the west coast of the island of Viðoy. And what they witness is utterly devastating.

Viewers have been left shaken after watching the documentary as a whole, which also highlights some shocking truths about the widespread environmental destruction of the fishing industry on our oceans.

Netflix explains: "Filmmaker Ali Tabrizi initially set out to celebrate his beloved ocean, but instead found himself examining the harm that humans inflict upon the vulnerable seas.

"From plastics and fishing gear polluting the waters, to the irreparable damage of bottom trawling and by-catch, to illegal fishing and devastating hunting practices, humanity is wreaking havoc on marine life and, by extension, the entire planet.

"What Tabrizi ultimately uncovered not only challenges notions of sustainable fishing but will shock anyone who cares about the wonders of ocean life, as well as the future of the planet and our place on it."

The documentary is a truly heartbreaking, but vital watch.
