One-time Flipper trainer Ric O'Barry is keen to make amends to the dolphin community.

He claims those captured but not selected for the dolphin entertainment industry are mass-culled in a secret cove in a small town in Japan. Here, he does his best to expose that practice. And, boy, does he. An extraordinary documentary that takes in break-ins, bribery and brazen lies, it culminates in hard-to-watch footage of a slaughter that turns the sea blood-red.
