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

Great Family film..remobec you are ripping apart a family film
26 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie on HBO and loved the story as well as the scenery. I can not understand how a person like remobec can go into extensive details on how things are wrong with this very nicely made film. You have to take it for what it is worth a very nice remake of an old remake of the original silent film and Novel as well.

Do not pay attention to someone who bases his whole post on ripping apart a very nice and heart warming family film
