Dolphin Tale is a poignant story about a dolphin named Winter, who loses her tail to an attack by a group of crabs.
However, when a young boy comes in contact with this injured dolphin, he tries his best to heal the pain-inflicted dolphin by requesting the concerned veterinaries to use prosthesis on her. It is truly moving to see a young boy developing a love thread with the dolphin, and caring for her. This adventurous take not only paints a clear picture about humans’ soft side for beasts, it also gives a message that if a living organism becomes handicapped after an uninvited accident, the hope to survive and fight should never fade away. Hence, the movie is certainly didactic and boosting for those, who accept their defeat at the hands of life after becoming disabled. Coming back to the story, the dolphin is taken care of by the generous friend of hers, who promises to bring back the joy and happiness that the dolphin possessed in her own world. Winter is rescued from the Florida coast in this pitiable condition and the young boy shoulders the responsibility to let her heal completely.
The movie even reflects upon the latest developments in the field of medicine, which ensure that a lost body part is no more a hindrance to a living being’s existence. All that matters is the will power to overpower the helplessness that befalls a handicapped being!
