The pursuit of contemporary values, no matter how well informed, leaves you empty. Billy of Meek Cove, an extreme example, proves this. Abandoned as a baby, Billy owes her life to the Atlantic seals who raised her. Under the supervision of anthropologist Dr. Pike, she eventually becomes civilized. Billy's success in re-entering the human world brings fame and respect to Dr. Pike. Billy, however, must face the bitter consequences of her new life.
