Synopsis:
After years of work, marine biologist Jake Terrell (George C Scott) has found a way of communicating verbally with the dolphins he houses in his Florida research centre. However, when it becomes clear that his sponsors want the dolphins trained to perform a commando-like sabotage operation on the yacht of the US President, Jake has to re-think the ethics of his own research.
