Edward Johnson is a man with a theory: that dolphins are intelligent! But when Edward risks it all to prove his theory he is met with skepticism and even hostility. Against all odds Edward manages to recruit a dream team, including a fugitive computer hacker, a mathematician, an ex navy seal, and the most advanced supercomputer in the world to find out the impossible. At last the truth lies just around the corner, but each discovery seems to hint at a truth more and more unsettling. It becomes a race against time for both Edward and the dolphins as the age old question of 'Are we alone?' is answered.
