In 1983 a wild bottlenose dolphin named Fungie settled down in the bay of Dingle, a town at the Atlantic in Ireland’s southwest. Over the years Fungie has built up a special bond with a number of residents of Dingle. Also large groups of tourists have been visiting Dingle to catch a glimpse of this phenomenon. Tourists only come for the excitement and opportunity to take a quick photo. But Fungie gives hope, faith and stability to those who live beside him and belief to have a special relationship with him. As Fungie is getting older, gradually the question arises, how will it be without him…
