Day of the Dolphin, The

A FILM BY Mike Nichols


Jake Terrell, a biologist who devotes his life to dolphin research, has concentrated his efforts for four years on Alpha, an animal born and brought up in the center, and for whom he feels an almost fatherly affection. Regrettably, the outside world insists on trying to use his research for political ends and Jake finds himself trapped tragically between these forces and his own beliefs.
