Seven dolphins that used to star in aquarium shows go back to the ocean. The miraculous story of how the dolphins find freedom with the help of their human friends.

Synopsis

In 2012, the first dolphin trial took place in Korea at the Jeju District Court. The fate of 6 dolphins, Jedol, Chunsam, Sampal, Taesan, Boksoon, and Haesoon who were caught from the Jeju offshore and forced to be on the dolphin shows at Pacific Land and Seoul Grand Park. While the trial was dragging on as Pacific Land lodged appeals, Haesoon died at Pacific Land. Finally, the Supreme Court ruled favorably on the dolphins. And Seoul City made an announcement for ‘the zoo without the dolphins’ and decided to send Daepo and Geumdeung back to the sea. Daepo and Geumdeung have been on the show for 20 years after they got caught when they were young. Many people who have worked at the different positions and have different thoughts, including a dolphin trainer, a dolphin liberation movement activist, a ecologist who researches dolphins, and many others, get united to execute the project of freeing the dolphins. It’s a challenge that you can’t predict the result, for the dolphins and the people as well.
