Two worlds separated by water and land come together in this heartwarming, stand-up-and-cheer adventure about the friendship between a troubled young boy and a 7,000-pound orca named Willy, the star attraction at a local adventure park. When the boy learns that the park is planning to euthanize his finned friend, he races against time to return Willy to his natural habitat, the open ocean. Directed by Emmy-winner Simon Wincer ("Crossfire Trail," "Lonesome Dove") and co-starring Lori Petty ("A League of Their Own," "Tank Girl") and Michael Madsen ("Kill Bill" volumes 1 and 2, "Sin City"). The no. 2 family hit of the year, The Los Angeles Times says "There's a sincerity to this movie, a power and spread to its imagery that...captures honestly a sense of the wonders of nature."
