Quiver debuted the official trailer for Blueback, the Australian eco-drama film starring Mia Wasikowksa, Radha Mitchell, and Eric Bana. In the film, Abby, a child befriends an enormous blue grouper while diving. When Abby realizes that the fish is under threat, she takes inspiration from her activist Mother to take on poachers to save her friend.

Also starring in the film are Ilsa Fogg, Liz Alexander, Ariel Donoghue, Clarence Ryan, Pedrea Jackson, Erik Thomson, and Eddie Baroo.

Directed by Robert Connolly, Blueback premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival, and will be released in theaters on March 3, and on demand on April 21.

While researching Australia’s deteriorating coral reefs, young marine biologist Abby receives word of her elderly mother Dora’s stroke. As she rushes to her seaside hometown to care for Dora, Abby recalls her childhood years spent living in concert with the ocean, and her mother’s efforts to protect the bay from greedy developers and invasive fishermen alike, often to the detriment of their own relationship. Among the coral gardens, Abby also befriends a rare fish, an enormous blue groper — affectionately named Blueback — a tether to her environmentalism, and the key to reminding Abby and Dora of their love for each other and the vulnerable waters they call home.

Watch the official trailer for Blueback.
