Storyline

Jim Rayborn has for years been doing most of the work of his grim father Clay's farm, yet couldn't convince the patriarch to switch from cattle to sheep because the warmer climate favors shorter grasses. For Jim's mother's funeral, his sister Lisa returns from New York. Jim expects she'll leave again soon, but learns later her alleged fashion career was a lie. She forces Clay to allow adopting a sheepdog, which Jim considered too expensive: young Lucky, who was dumped at the pond which nature-devoted ma used to help run with veterinarian Don, who soon becomes more then friends with her. Lucky proves talented as the siblings train her, until storm causing a forest fire makes her a canine but temporarily disabled hero. Truth time approaches for everyone. Written by KGF Vissers

Was it just luck
18 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What do you really want out of a movie? To escape from real life for 90 minutes or so>? To fantasize a little? Or do you want to be inspired to try a little harder, to look beyond the obvious? If the latter, than this movie may delight you. Rare that my eight year old son and I can really enjoy a movie equally well, but we did here. No aliens were harmed in the making of this movie, and you may just have a smile on your face at the end. The real message of this movie, to follow your dream- and to face your realities, is a timeless one for us all. Another reviewer dismissed the kindly old father who could get snappy. In my world we call this reality, and for me it made the movie MORE real, as in real life personalities and foibles. A family favorite at our house, maybe soon in yours. Happy movie hunting!
