Set in a research laboratory that embodies the mechanical, detached attitudes of 20th-century science, this play tells the poignant story of a friendless, simple scrubwoman (Ruth White) and a dolphin who stubbornly refuses to talk to anyone but her.

Secretly, she and the dolphin become friends and together strike a blow for love and understanding that baffles the experts. For this production, famed puppeteer Bil Baird created and manipulated a life-size dolphin puppet, also acting as its voice. The Modern Jazz Quartet improvised and performed the original score

Die junge Musiklehrerin Jean Hansen (Judy Garland) bewirbt sich in der von dem Psychologen Dr. Matthew Clark (Burt Lancaster) geleiteten psychiatrischen Kinderklinik. Sie ist vom Leben enttäuscht und möchte durch die Arbeit mit den Kindern etwas Gutes tun. Jean hat keine Fachkenntnisse, doch sie überzeugt Dr. Clark durch ihr starkes Engagement. Rasch wird sie auf den zwölfjährigen Reuben Widdicombe (Bruce Ritchey) aufmerksam. Der introvertierte Junge sondert sich trotzig von allen anderen ab, doch gegenüber Jean zeigt er ein spontanes Zutrauen. Jean hört, dass Reuben seit seiner Ankunft im Heim noch nie von seinen Eltern besucht worden ist. Sie sorgt sich daraufhin so intensiv um ihn, dass sie die anderen Patienten vernachlässigt. Dr. Clark wirft Jean daraufhin vor, dass Liebe allein keine Lösung für Reubens Problem sei. Er will nicht, dass Reuben ständig umsorgt wird und möchte stattdessen die Eigeninitiative des Jungen wecken. Jean ist von den oft recht ruppigen Entscheidungen ihres Chefs enttäuscht. Er lehnte es auch ab, Reubens Eltern einzuladen. Unter einem Vorwand lässt Jean dennoch Sophie (Gena Rowlands) und Ted Widdicombe (Steven Hill) in die Klinik kommen. Damit löst sie eine dramatische Konfrontation aus
