In Jasper National Park, the wolves, Kate and Humphrey, have known each other since puppyhood, but they are on the oppose ends of the Western Pack's social structure with Kate as the energetic Alpha daughter of the pack leader and Humphrey being the good humoured Omega. That social structure forces Kate to accept an arranged marriage with Garth of the Eastern Pack to unite the packs for peace, regardless of Humphrey's hopeless attraction for her. Before that union can occur, Kate and Humphrey are captured by the park's rangers and sent to an Idaho park as part of a wolf repopulation project. Mindful of her duties, Kate is determined to return to Jasper and Humphrey offers to help with the assistance of two odd geese. However, as this disparate pair struggle through the dangers to get home, a growing mutual appreciation of their talents and then a deeper love threatens to disastrously complicate everything if they make it back.

User Reviews

an entertaining time passer
24 May 2011 | by manicmeukSee all my reviews

im not going to bother going into the ins and outs of the story, there's plenty of info out there for that.

despite the negative reviews this one got, i quite enjoyed watching it, for a Sunday afternoon time passer. yeah the animation is a bit lacking, and the story is so cliché its painful, but, there were a few laugh out loud moments and in general an all round OK movie

don't watch if your into something that pushes the boundaries of animation techniques or story telling.

do watch if like me, u have a soft spot for the simple stories that help pass a relaxing afternoon.

absolutely fine for the kiddies really, some really obscure sexual references to appeal to the older kiddies but nothing to worry about. definitely a rainy day film
