Ever since the death of her parents 10 years ago, 14 year old Annabel (Tyler Jade Nixon) has lived on an Caribbean island paradise with her grandpa Jonah (Peter Woodward), where they make a meagre living from fishing and doing tourist tours, having pretty much all the locals as their extended family and dolphin Mitzy as their closest friend. Sure, they have problems making ends meet, but they are happy. Enter Annabel's filthy rich grandparents on her mother's side, Samuel (David Raizor) and Sheryl (Annette Lovrien Duncan), who want to win custody of Annabel, and they have lawyer Carbunkle (Bob Bledsoe) on their side who doesn't shy away from dirty tricks to get his clients what they want. First he has a new caseworker, Desaray (Dionne Lea), appointed to re-evaluate the custody situation, and she's initially less than impressed by Jonah - until she's pretty much forced to get to know him better because Annabel and her son Mateo (Aaron Burrows) have become best friends, and she's totally taken by Jonah's point of view. Next, Carbunkle has Jonah's fishing license revoked, and offers restoration and a big pile of money for the girl, and when that doesn't work, he steals Desaray's initial, unfavourable report about Annabel's living conditions from her office and uses this as evidence at the custody hearing. And thus, Samuel and Cheryl gain custody of their granddaughter - only she's less than happy, runs away, steals a boat to make good her escape ... but it runs out of power than catches fire on high sea, with the radio not working. And with Samuel and Cheryl and their lawyer having failed, it's up to the islanders and dolphin Mitzy to save the girl ...


Now Dolphin Island certainly hasn't set out to re-invent the genre, or does even strike high on the originality chart, but it's hard not to like the positive message of the film that clearly favours alternative lifestyles and a back-to-nature stance over conformity, and really reinforces this message by beautiful pictures of the actual island paradise it was filmed at. And the directorial effort is suitably subtle and the performances very grounded to make this really work despite the slightly predictable script.
