'Elizabeth is standing by the angry sea. Watching. Waiting for the dolphins.
Elizabeth, and the gulls are crying, and the bitter wind is catching the white foaming tops of the breaking waves, tossing them high and throwing a curtain of sea spray - a veil of fine blowing spindrift - across the wild shore.
'Watching. Waiting for the dolphins, to whom Elizabeth will give the spirit of her grandmother, dying of cancer in the house on the cliff top. It is thus that she meets the old beachcomber, 'Bull' Morgan. The simple story shows how, over the next few days, these two very different people share the pain of loss, and grow towards friendship and an understanding of each other. Elizabeth learns something of Morgan's unhappy past and the ways of the sea - as he learns from the girl a capacity to let loved ones go.'
