Former renowned dolphin trainer Richard O'Barry has become a powerful figure in animal rights activism. In this stunning expose, he speaks out against the hunting of aquatic mammals and their captivity. He sets his sights on Taiji, a harbor town in Japan where dolphins compose a great part of the local economy. The documentary focuses on the horrid treatment of the animals by the fishermen, and the stunning level of pollution that is destroying the delicate ecosystem.
