Storyline

Alyssa is a troubled 14-year old, suspended from school a year after her mother has drowned. Her grandmother Lucy, at wit's end, decides to take Alyssa to her father, James, whom Alyssa thought was dead for years. He studies dolphin communication at Smith's Point, on the Grand Bahama Island. James has not known of Alyssa's existence and is clueless about parenthood. The women arrive at the same time that James may lose his research operation to a tourist attraction. Father, daughter, dolphins, and town are on a collision course. Alyssa and James get encouragement from James's girlfriend and her father. It's the dolphins who can teach, and Alyssa who discovers how to listen. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Vice-Principal: [when Lucy tells him that Alyssa is going through a difficult period in life, which includes her mother - Lucy's daughter - passing away] ... In my line of work, I hear MANY different versions of that story from MANY different people. The first dozen times, I found it affecting; the next dozen times, not so much. After the 40th time, I stopped caring. After the 60th time, not only didn't I care, I stopped wanting to hear it anymore. This is about the 100th time; what does that tell you, ladies?

Wow...Quite Good
6 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I wasn't looking forward to this film, but I came away from it really impressed. Even though it's somewhat corny at times, it deals with some fairly complex issues. There was emotion, drama, and even some well-placed humor. The film looks great, and has some impressive performances, especially from some of the more minor characters. Plus, there were the dolphins. Ahhhh, the dolphins. Very cute, and very funny, as always. Granted, it's not my kind of movie, but it's very well made, and definitely enjoyable. I would highly recommend this to anyone into teen/family dramas, or anyone who's a fan of dolphins.
