Plot Synopsis

Based on the novel ''White Shark'' by Peter Benchley. A shark expert and his scientist ex-wife doing research at an abandoned U.S. Navy lab in the Caribbean discovers that the military developed a terrifying hybrid--part shark part dolphin --as a potential secret weapon during the Vietnam War. Soon islanders are being eaten but the local constable refuses to heed the warnings and a sinister admiral wants to kill the creature just so he can bury the truth.
