“Chloe (Fish) is halfway through her Ph.D. program in marine mammals (the study of whales) at one of Miami’s top universities,” reads a synopsis for the film. “She works long hours in the lab, but what she loves most is being on the water with the majestic creatures. But given her competitive field, she doesn’t get that opportunity as often as she would like.”
“At the top of her class, she is considering applying for a highly sought-after scholarship to fund the final two years of her PhD,” the synopsis continues. “Dr. Andrea Ware (Kelders), Chloe’s mentor, encourages her to go beyond their local waters. dr. Ware convinces her to expand her studies to whales in the Pacific Northwest, where she would gain more experience in the field and hopefully gain the confidence to apply for the scholarship. While there, Chloe meets a whale watching guide (Hollingsworth), and they soon find that they have a bond with more than just orcas.”
“A Splash of Love” airs Saturday, July 30 at 8 p.m. EDT on Hallmark Channel.
