Storyline

Jed and his veterinarian mother are looking after a wolf-dog that was rescued from the Alaskan wilderness after being injured in a long-running spirit battle with a raven. Despite being a wild animal, the dog takes a liking to Jed, who has a poor relationship with his mother. Jed discovers a few strange things about his dog - that may be linked to a proposal to use their town as a toxic-waste dump. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@imdb.com>

A Nutty Aroma, Without the Bitter Aftertaste
18 November 1998 | by (Denver, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Reminded me of "Deerhunter" without the violence, bad language, or heavy-handed war references. Where did they find that Wolverine Mask?
