The story follows a little boy named Sawyer who finds a dolphin beached on the sand. It has netting wrapped around its tail. When marine rescuers (led by Harry Connick Jr.) take in Winter the Dolphin, Sawyer finds friends in both the human and animal family at the marine center. But there is trouble for Winter. Her tail is infected and will have to be removed. Sawyer becomes her biggest advocate, lobbying for a doctor who makes prosthetics for wounded soldiers to make one for the hobbled dolphin. Winter becomes a symbol of home for soldiers and children alike.
