The dolphin is still full of surprises. Group assistance, an unknown side of this charismatic animalís behavior, is the central theme of this documentary presented as a scientific tale.

Unveiling a wide range of behaviors in oceans around the globe, this initiatory voyage depicts the dolphinís altruistic world as we follow the misadventures of one of them in search of a host group.

May it be while hunting fish stranded in shallow waters in South Carolina, playing with a venomous snake in the Rangiroa lagoon, defending the group against a tiger shark attack in the Marquesas islands, parading in the crystal-clear pacific waters or surfing on waves from the bows of tankers in Texas, everything relies on the group: the dolphin needs to be surrounded by its peers to feed, defend himself, communicate and breed.
