Dolphins is a music-driven, action romance film written and directed by Mark Jay and starring Karl Davies. The film follows the lives of a group of boy racers living in Brighton who struggle to coexist with the indie scene that the town is famous for.
A gritty, modern fairytale teen romance set in the seaside town of Brighton UK, inside the edgy and often dangerous world of the Street Racer gangs and Indie Punks the town is famous for. In the week before Christmas a strangely beautiful and emotionally super-charged love story unfolds between two kids from opposite ends of the town. A Romeo and Juliet for the too fast to live generation.

Director and writer Mark Jay first had the idea for this feature film while watching teenagers pose by their customised cars. He initially talked with the drivers before engaging in more specialist research into this hobby.
The score was composed by Sacha Putnam and Fatboy Slim’s Brighton based Skint Records supplied the tracks with additional music from Lucky Jim, The Young Offenders’ Institute, Lo Fidelity All Stars, Doll And The Kicks, Matthew Garrity and Fatboy Slim himself.
The UK DVD release is set for 19 March 2009.
