During the Greek era, harming a Dolphin was punishable by death.

In Japan, at a Nature Reserve called the cove, the slaughter of thousands of dolphins is occurring. Their cries for help and their massacre was covertly filmed and recorded by evading the police, hidden cameras, unmanned helicopters and with countless hours spent hiding on the edge of a cliff.

"But in a remote, glistening cove, surrounded by barbed wire and “Keep Out” signs, lies a dark reality. It is here, under cover of night, that the fishermen of Taiji, driven by a multi-billion dollar dolphin entertainment industry and an underhanded market for mercury-tainted dolphin meat, engage in an unseen hunt. The nature of what they do is so chilling -- and the consequences are so dangerous to human health -- they will go to great lengths to halt anyone from seeing it."
