Synopsis
Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or "killer whales," fly out of the water and soar through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet this mighty black and white mammal has many sides - a majestic, friendly giant, seemingly eager to take trainers for a ride around the pool, yet shockingly - and unpredictably - able to turn on them at a moment's notice. This documentary sets out to unravel the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who - unlike any orca in the wild - has taken the lives of several people while in captivity.
