Meet Winter, a 7-year-old dolphin who swims with a prosthetic tail.
She is the star of Dolphin Tale, your little sister's favorite movie.
As a young orphan, she was rescued off Florida's east coast. A fisherman found her tangled in crab-pot lines and gravely injured.
Her tail had to be amputated — and against all odds, Winter survived.
Her story made waves, and Winter became a Hollywood star! She even landed a sequel, due out next year.
But Winter shines most off-screen. She inspires kids who also wear prosthetic limbs.
From around the world, they write her letters.
Because so many tourists visit her home (and buy stuffed Winter dolls there), the aquarium is working to build her a cooler pad.
Awash in this attention, she still performs her regular shows.
And swims around like, "What's the big deal?"
Fame hasn't spoiled her. She still maintains a responsible schedule.
And she's cool living with her pool-mate, Hope.
Life can be wonderful even after tough breaks.
