Storyline

It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter's surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins' social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium. Written by Warner Bros.

Great family movie
12 September 2014 | by thirlithSee all my reviews

This is a great family movie. Written based on the real story is reflects on the true motto of Clearwater Marine Aquarium: "rescue, rehabilitate & release" The movie does not promote cruelty or keeping animals in captivity. If the dolphin or the turtle health bill is good and the animal is able to survive on its own then the crew release it back into the ocean. Harry Connick Jr. plays Dr Clay Haskett, and when asked if it was possible for Winter to survive on her own would he let her go. His answer: right this minute! As it is the animals that stay in the aquarium are either too seriously injured or with other medical reasons (dolphin Panama, that was keeping Winter company, was deaf and not able to echo-locate food and feed herself) The acting is good, story line simple enough for kids to follow and some moments you find yourself holding breath waiting for what is next. And after watching the movie you may want to visit real stars Winter & Hope in Clearwater, FL.
