"Free Willy" (1993) is a family drama film. Jesse (Richter) is a kid without parents and bounced from one foster home to another. One night he’s caught spraying graffiti in a theme park. Part of Jesse’s punishment involves cleaning up the damage he caused at the park, where the new attraction is Willy, a killer whale who is being trained to do tricks. Jesse and Willy develop a close emotional bond. Dial (Michael Ironside), the owner of the park, having insured the whale for $1 million dollars, figures Willy is worth more dead than alive.
