Richard O'Barry is a kind of gamekeeper turned poacher. In his youth he caught and trained dolphins for the Flipper television series. Ever since he's been trying to make amends. Here Psihoyos assembles a crew to follow O'Barry to a remote cove in Japan where dolphins are trapped and killed for meat on an industrial scale.
