A triple threat environmental documentary, horror film, and spy thriller, The Cove is as suspenseful as it is enlightening. The largest supplier of dolphins in the world is located in the picturesque town of Taiji, Japan. But the town has a dark, horrifying secret hidden from the rest of the world. The only way to stop the evil acts of one company, and the town's protection of it, is to expose them. Armed with state-of-the-art surveillance equipment, a band of activists, led by the most famous dolphin trainer in the world, devise a plan to infiltrate the cove to document the events that happen there.
