Young girl Dot and her friend Nelson the dolphin find Tonga, a beached whale who lost her family in whalers attack and wants to die. Dot believes that Moby Dick could convince Tonga to live, so Nelson takes Dot to Antarctica to find him.
On the Carolina coast, Godolphin College's new track coach lodges at Blackbeard's Inn, run by the Daughters of the Buccaneers who claim to be descendants of the notorious pirate and who risk losing their hotel to the local mobster.
I remember watching this beautiful film when I was a little girl ... being captivated by Dot and Kangaroo's adventures in the Australian wild, and then being moved to tears at the end when they part. 20 years have now passed since my first viewing, and it still brings bittersweet tears to my eyes.
