Directed by Charles Martin Smith in 2011, this American docudrama delves into the life of Winter---a female bottlenose dolphin rescued in December 2005 off the Florida coast.
Winter lost her tail after becoming entangled with a rope attached to a crab trap.
The handicapped dolphin was fitted with a prosthetic tail.
It is a heartwarming good story with the playful dolphin and its human friends.

Originally broadcast on February 21, 2017, this 56-minute FRONTLINE documntary contains two episodes: "Out of GITMO" and "FOREVER PRISON".
The first 40 minutes of the episode focuses around Mansur al-Dayfi, a former Guantanamo captive released to Serbia in July 2016.
Reporter Arun Rath travels to Serbia for a stay to allow him to profile al-Dayfi, in depth.
The attention he paid to al-Dayfi triggers increased scrutiny from Serbian security officials.
The second episode shows the little known story of how the millitary base came to be used to hold people beyond the reach of US law.
Together, the film provides essential context for the continuing debate on what to do with the people still there and what will happen to the camp going forward.
It is an informative and shocking disclosure of the infamous Guantanamo Bay camp and its detainees.
