More Detail:

With animated vigor, BALTO is the ultimate dog story. An unwanted, ill-treated dog turns out to be the town hero when he succeeds where others fail. In Nome, Alaska, a little girl named Rosey has just received a dog sled from her parents. She promptly harnesses her well-bred dog, Jeena, to the sled. They rush to the street to watch the annual dog sled race and see Steele, the lead dog, flash through the finish line. Soon, Steele fights with Balto, a half-breed dog-wolf, but both Rosey and Jeena sense Balto is a special animal. Rosey becomes dangerously ill. The doctor’s supply of medicine is quickly depleted, and a way must be found to obtain more, but a tremendous blizzard is raging, and the closest source is 600 miles away. BALTO comes to the rescue.

Based on a true story, this humorous, yet suspenseful and clever animated movie will be enjoyed by the entire family. Bring plenty of tissues too, because it is also a tear jerker of sorts. To the movie maker’s credit, there is scarcely anything inappropriate; however, some dog fights and narrow escapes may upset sensitive youngsters. BALTO is a feel-good family movie about heroes coming in different shapes and sizes and that we all have special talents that make us worthy and unique.
