|Plot Summary of Dream Water|
|"During a field trip to the Victoria Seaquarium, two elementary school students witness a tragic accident when a trainer falls into the killer whale pool and is deliberately drowned by the whales. Now in their final years of high school, these students have been heavily influenced by this experience. Cassie is a talented ballerina who's “shrink” parents haven't been able to help her get over her experience (in her mind, haven't seemed to try). She is haunted by frequent nightmares.

Both teens struggle to face the horrific accident that has so influenced their lives. "
