The movie plot is based on the folklore of "The Botte, or Dolphin" who comes out of the water disguised as a human in order to entice the village women to make love with him. He is particularly interested in the heroine of the movie, Corina, who has born him a child. The men of the village hate "The Botte" and want to kill him. From looking at the videocase, one would expect a somewhat "racy" film, but in actuality the movie is quite tame. There is some nudity, but nothing too explicit.
