About the Film:

Directed by Dani Menkin and Yonatan Nir. Israel, 2012, 72 mins. Hebrew, Arabic with English subtitles

Morad, an Arabic teenager in the north of Israel—disconnects himself from humans after being brutally beaten. When told by doctors that dolphin-assisted therapy is the last treatment option, Morad’s father sells everything and takes his son to the Red Sea captive dolphin facility Dolphin Reef near Eilat. After months of silence, Morad starts speaking again. Filmed over four years, this documentary is a remarkable tale of love, friendship, and healing. Official Selection: Hot Docs International Documentary Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival. Winner: Jury Mention Award, Jerusalem International Film Festival.
