[ Story ]

Herb & Dorothy director Sasaki Megumi tackles the whaling industry controversy in this documentary which took six years to make.
The tiny fishing village of Taiji in Wakayama Prefecture has become entangled in an international controversy over its hunting of dolphins since the film "The Cove" won an Academy award. Not bound to the "pros and cons" of whaling, the camera captures a large variety of opinions and raises questions about whether it is possible to coexist with someone who is the antithesis of oneself, in other words the predicament of diversity, as well as the problems of social media dissemination.
