Three and one-half tons of a best friend: family adventure doesn't get any bigger! Willy is an orca whale confined in a Pacific Northwest aquatic park's too-small tank and separated from his family in the nearby bay. No one understands Willy's moods-except a 12-year old boy who knows what it's like to be without a family. That boy is scruffy street kid Jesse, who befriends Willy and risks all to set him free.
