Morad's ever loving parents take him to see a specialist, who tries his absolute best to begin the healing process for him, but his efforts are of no avail. The specialist then gives Morad's family one last resort to save him, or else he would face being hospitalised in a mental institution, possibly for the rest of his life, but it will be expensive!
Morad's family slave and sacrifice so his absolutely devoted father can take him to have therapy treatments with the majestic dolphins in Eilat and the results begin to show, almost instantly, and Morad begins to communicate again, but he still has many more hurdles in his life to face, before he can finally go home.
