Eye of the Dolphin is a 2007 aquatic drama directed by Michael D. Sellers. After the death of her mother, Alyssa (Carly Schroeder) goes to live with her grandmother Lucy (Katharine Ross). The relationship is difficult and the two struggle to get along. After a year, Lucy, unable to cope with the rebellious Alyssa, sends her to the Bahamas to live with her estranged father, Doctor James Hawk (Adrian Dunbar). Alyssa's arrival on the island, however, comes at a difficult time for Dr. Hawk. He is fighting greedy politicians who want to turn his dolphin research center into an amusement park. While Alyssa and her father get off to a rough start, Doctor Hawk's girlfriend Tamika (Christine Adams), and Tamika's father, Daniel (George Harris), help Alyssa adjust to island life. Soon after, Alyssa discovers she has the ability to communicate with dolphins and befriends a wild dolphin. While Doctor Hawk does not approve of Alyssa's friendship with the dolphin for scientific reasons, all three come to depend on each other for their survival.
