In 2009, a documentary movie called "The Cover" focused the spotlight of world attention on the tiny coastal village of Taiji, Japan. Once lauded as the birthplace of Japanese whaling, today the work of Taiji is still centered on the exploitation of marine mammals. The small port city is now the principal provider of captive whales and dolphins to the world's marine parks and is responsible for the cruel slaughter of thousands of dolphins annually. "Salt Water Tears" is written around author Len Varley's first-person, eyewitness journal account of the events in and around Taiji in the winter of 2010.
