The compelling point of view of this four-minute film immediately draws the viewer in, as if you were experiencing Morgan's life yourself. You may not even know who Morgan is, or her story, but as soon as your eye breaks the surface with her, you realize you are along for the ride. The distinctive viewpoint of being immersed with an orca, in the wild, as she swims with her family, is persuasive. The viewer learns that Morgan, a Norwegian orca, has been separated from her family and transported into what we, as humans, would typically describe as a nightmare. The tempo increases to a climatic point in the captive setting, before drifting back to the free, unlimited world Morgan had previously lived in, but can now only experience through her dreams.
"The challenge was to create an emotional contrast between the beauty of life in the wild and the shock of what it is like to live in captivity," Jeremie Collado, from France and the film's editor and sound designer, commented. Irene Buesa García, one of the two directors from Spain, said, "The subtitle, Stolen Freedom, came immediately to mind because it perfectly reflects Morgan's story. With the pretext of helping her, the captivity industry 'rescued' her, but then everything she knew was taken away and replaced by an artificial 'habitat,' very different to what an orca naturally needs to thrive."
