Dolphinariums, game over?

Recently, several laws passed in Europe banning dolphinarium shows. After years of entertaining humans in exchange for rewards, what should we do with dolphins and orcas that have been conditioned in this way? What decent solution for their retirement?


Committed to defending them, French humorist Guillaume Meurice examines the fate of these captive cetaceans and questions the mistreatment that we humans have inflicted on the animal world for centuries. Using a funny and impertinent investigation style, he meets with scientists, associations, and politicians, and determines this important turning point in our relationship with animals.
