In 2010, 'The Cove,' a documentary denouncing longstanding whale and dolphin hunting traditions, won an Academy Award. Overnight, Taiji, the sleepy fishing town in Japan at the center of the film, became a go-to destination and battleground for activists from around the world. A Whale of a Tale reveals the complex story behind the ongoing debate. Can a proud 400-year-old whaling tradition survive a tsunami of modern animal-rights activism and colliding forces of globalism vs. localism?
