What is the connection between the Jewish people and the awesome dolphins of the ocean? During World War II, Charlie Passo, beloved uncle of Dr. Beverly Newman and a sailor in the U.S. Merchant Marine, was torpedoed by a German U-boat off America's East Coast, but was saved from the sharks by circling dolphins. This true story ends well and serves as the backdrop for a delightful personal video tour of Florida's gorgeous "Dolphin Trail" from Clearwater to St. Petersburg.
