Dolphin Boy tells the story of Morad, a teenager from an Arab village in the north of Israel who disconnects himself from humans following a violent attack. As a last resort before hospitalization in a mental Institution, he is taken by his devoted father to be treated with Dolphins in Eilat. Morad starts speaking again after months of silence, but he erases his past and refuses to go home to his awaiting mother. Filmed over the course of four years, this powerful documentary is about the devastating havoc that human violence can wreak upon the soul, and about the healing powers of nature and love.
The award-winning documentary was screened in over 130 film festivals worldwide and in 2012 acquired by Disney Pictures for feature adaptation!
