Emotional, Suspenseful

This movie is touching and a well-made documentary about the village of Taijii in Japan that captures and sells/ kills more than 25,000 dolphins a year. Must-see for animal lovers and those interested in international relations and the futility of commissions such as the international whaling commission.
