Yagi was aware of the 2010 documentary THE COVE, but had not bothered watching it, regarding it as another exaggerated attack on Japan’s dolphin hunting. But in 2014, the UN's International Court of Justice ruled that the Japanese government must halt its whaling program in the Antarctic, based on Australia’s argument that it was ‘commercial whaling in disguise’.This gave Yagi a sense of urgency and fear that whale meat would soon completely disappear from Japan. Armed with nothing but a video camera to record her findings and a passion to know the truth of the matter on whaling, Yagi started her research, which eventually led her to Taiji.Gradually director Keiko Yagi discovers the larger mystifying aspects lying behind the international political whaling debate, which has never been clarified to the public. Something much larger than just THE COVE.
