Storyline

Four kids and a dog embark on the adventure of a lifetime -- the search for the end of the Rainbow. With the aid of computers and an irrepressible belief, they achieve the impossible, finding and riding the multicolored arc. But the gold they take starts a more dangerous adventure, because gold gives the Rainbow energy and the Rainbow gives the world its colors...and if earth loses the color green, no oxygen can be produced. As the world turns black and white, the children battle time and disbelief to restore the Rainbow's power...and save the world. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Was never given a release in the United States aside from it's USA premiere as an official entry in the Newport Beach International Film Festival, April 3-13, 1997. Distribution of the film in the U.S market was hampered due to the fact that the Canadian territory had been sold prior to filming. The major studios decided, in spite of their keen interest in the film and it's A-List cast including Hoskins and Dan Aykroyd, that it was too much of a financial risk to invest in prints and advertising, in the absence of total North American Territory rights and their projected box office revenues.
