Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) is the next-shell neighbour of Marlin (Albert Brooks) and his young son, Nemo (Hayden Rolence) on the Great Barrier Reef. During a field trip to witness the stingray migration, the loveable blue tang experiences a rush of fragmented memories of her parents Charlie (Eugene Levy) and Jenny (Diane Keaton).

"I miss 'em," Dory tells Marlin and the three plucky fish embark on an epic quest to California to reunite the forgetful daughter with her loved ones.

In almost every aspect, Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane's journey of self-fishcovery is the emotional and comical equal of its predecessor (Finding Nemo), dazzling the senses with stunningly realistic visuals and Thomas Newman's buoyant orchestral score.
