DOLPHIN TALE 2

117 min | PG
Years after the dedicated team at Clearwater Marine Hospital developed a unique prosthetic tail for an injured dolphin and saved her life, their fight is still 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.
