"Severson was among the many seeking alternate lifestyle solutions, but wanted to go out the door with a plea for the oceans and our planet. The bigger the venue the better, it seemed, and Hollywood volunteered (with strings attached). Changes were made to make the film more commercial, with the final release gaining and losing.
