Storyline

Sam, the 12 year old son of a famous missing polar explorer, has despaired. His mother has married again and moved with him and her new husband to the wasteland of Canada. He doesn't like him, the place, and has problems finding new friends. One day he meets a wild dog which one looks like the leader of his father's sled dogs. With him and the two family dogs he plans to compete in this year's sled dog race. He is getting closer to the neighbour's daughter who is able to build the sled. But her father wants to kill all wild dogs... Written by Soeren Ney <SoerenNey@AOL.COM>

Needs dubbed in a few places
7 March 2016 | by mikhen-37536See all my reviews

The movie is OK, kind of slow at first, but picks up. It is about a boy who has lost his father in an unknown sledding / exploration accident and wishes he could find him.

His mother remarries and they move up north and the boy thinks he found his fathers dog.

Neighbors are upset because wild dogs are mating with wolves and killing livestock.

Some exciting things happen for the boy and the ending is very good.

I am giving it 5 stars instead of 10 because it used "G**D***" twice and several other curse words. SO it is not Family Friendly.

I would give it a higher rating if the movie was dubbed to remove the unnecessary filthy language.
