Summary, etc.:
Nowhere in recent history has a captive mammal garnered go much attention as Keiko, the orca star of the 1993 hit film, 'Free Willy.' The film's success, partnered with growing public interest in animals held in captivity, launched a children's crusade that called for Keiko's release into the wild. The result: a multimillion dollar project that spanned four countries, and weathered endless controversy that continues to this day. Through first-hand accounts by the marine mammal experts charged with his care, 'Keiko: The Untold Story' follows Keiko, his life, his legacy of hope, and the untold story of his extraordinary years in Iceland and Norway.
