Flipper was one of the most beloved television characters of all time. Ironically, the fascination with dolphins that he caused created a tragic epidemic that has threatened their existence and become a multibillion dollar industry. The largest supplier of dolphins in the world is located in the picturesque town of Taijii, Japan. However, the town has a secret that it doesn't want the rest of the world to know. There are guards patrolling the cove, where the dolphin capturing takes place, who prevent any photography. Armed with state-of-the-art surveillance equipment, the members of the small filmmaking group, led by the most famous dolphin trainer in the world, devise a covert plan to infiltrate the cove to document the horrifying events that happen there. Part environmental documentary, part horror film, part spy thriller, “The Cove” is as suspenseful as it is enlightening.
