Treatment of the whales, from their capture and removal from parents, to their storage in tiny pools, to the incessant noise that bounces around the pools and aggravates their sonar leads to tragedy for the humans as well. Much like circuses and elephants that go on rampages after years of abuse by handlers, the whales of Sea World are living time bombs.

I’d seen the Sea World show when I was a kid, and I never thought about what the whales had undergone to get there.  This movie should open some eyes.
