Storyline

Recently orphaned in America, teenager David Roberts must spend the summer with grumpy maternal grandfather Adam MacAdam, whom he never met, on his sheep-farm on the Isle of Man. Both long for the end of the summer, having nothing in common but their love for dogs, notably Adam's precious champion sheepdog Bob. David strikes a friendship with Maggie, the sassy daughter of friendly neighbor Keith Moore, but Adam hates that family on account of an old canine competition-related tragedy. Other neighbors suspect Bob and the Moore's dog of the recent series of nocturnal sheep-kills. Written by KGF Vissers

Excellent movie
16 December 1999 | by (Erbach, Germany) – See all my reviews

I`ve seen the movie on ppv and there I only watched because of James Cromwell and Colm Meany (I'm a Trekker!). But then I began to forget about their roles in DS9. This movie takes you into the story like no other film! If you like films like this or not, watch it!
