While on location in a spooky Romanian villa with his Hollywood big-shot mom and her dorky boyfriend, twelve-year-old Kevin befriends a Renaissance-era girl ghost who helps him cause unrest on the set.
A lonely and friendless boy finds and untangles a hurt dolphin that is caught in a crab trap. He becomes very attached to the dolphin when the tail must be taken off to save the dolphin's life. The boy believes the dolphin would be able to swim normally if it was given a prosthetic tail.Written by

The gel / liner for Winter the dolphin - as well as Winter herself - is in fact REAL. It was not done with special effects and is actually Winter herself swimming around both without the prosthetic tail and with the prosthesis. Initially the aquarium had issues with keeping a prosthetic tail on her that was secure and comfortable. Because of this they reached out to a local medical manufacturer, ALPS South out of St. Petersburg, Florida partnered with Hanger Orthopedic Group and ALPS South developed the liner, specifically designed to comfortably and securely fit Winter's prosthetic tail.

Sawyer is wearing a short sleeve blue t-shirt when he jumps into the water after the relay race at the end of the movie. Once underwater, the shirt has long black sleeves. This indicates a passage of time. See more »
I highly recommend this movie. Such a feel good movie and I love that it's a true story. Winter totally won over my heart. Such a sweet dolphin! I just can't get over how much I loved this movie! My 7 year old also loved it. This movie showed an amazing story of triumph and not giving up. Really relates to those with handicaps. Winter has an amazing, thriving nature to her and shows us how to be compassionate, loving, and caring. I cried tears of joy seeing her overcome her disability and showing others that it can be done. This movie was very well made and focused on her rehab instead of her injury. If you have a love for dolphins this is a must see!
