Dolphin Tale is inspired by the
amazing true story of a brave dolphin and the
compassionate strangers who banded together to
save her life. Swimming free, a young dolphin is
caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail.
She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater
Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter. But
her fight for survival has just begun. Without a
tail, Winter's prognosis is dire. It will take the
expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the
ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor, and
the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring
about a groundbreaking miracle-a miracle that
might not only save Winter but could also help
scores of people around the world. -- (C) Warner
lonely and friendless boy finds and untangles a
hurt dolphin that is caught in a crab trap. He
becomes very attached to the dolphin when the tail
must be taken off to save the dolphin's life. The
boy believes the dolphin would be able to swim
normally if it was given a prosthetic tail.

story of Winter"
My favorite animal
is the dolphin. They're such fun, happy creatures!
When I saw this movie was coming out, I was so
excited! When I received tickets to a
pre-screening, I was beyond ecstatic. When the
movie ended, I was in such awe. The movie was very
well made. It tugged at my heart strings, as it is
so inspirational. My friend mentioned as we left
that she "wanted to go change the world" because
the movie was so inspiring! With all the not-
so-family-friendly movies out there, it's such a
nice breath of fresh air to see a movie like this-
inspirational, clean, entertaining. Go see it-
you'll be glad you did! I, for one, can't wait
till I can own it.
