On the day that the gray whale with the scarred dorsal fin took away his son, Jack set off on an obsessive quest to find him. The fisherman would do anything in his pursuit, even if it meant losing… everything. “How Jack Lost Time” by singer, actress, documentary director and award-winning author Stéphanie Lapointe and acclaimed artist Delphie Côté-Lacroix is a poetic and heart-wrenching story about loss and the little choices that change one’s life forever.
“Jack knew that he would never set foot on land and that from now on the sea would be his only home.”
