Rated G.
Part husky/part wolf, Balto doesn't know where he belongs. He's an outcast in Alaska, except to his true friends. Even though he's different, all of Balto's friends recognize what he still can't see himself; his noble spirit. One day, a serious diphtheria epidemic spreads among the children of Nome. When a blizzard closes off all routes of transport, there's no way to obtain life-saving medicine ... unless a team of sled dogs can race through the blinding Arctic storm and bring back antitoxin. But the dogs are lost in the frozen wilderness. Now, only Balto can rescue the team and save the children.

“The True story of an American hero. “ is what is printed on the front of the case. There’s nothing wrong with the story, but saying it is true is a HUGE exaggeration!

Inspiring and wonderful story about a dog who doesn't belong because he is half dog and half wolf. But with the help of some good friends (polar bears, a Russian snow goose, and a female husky that he falls in love with), he becomes a hero. Much needed medicine is brought to very sick children. The movie says based on a true story, but very little of it is actually based on the true story. Nonetheless a lovely piece of semi-fictional work. My kids watched it several times.

This Movie is a classic, I really like it, and it's better than some of the junk they make now. Forget dumb cartoons on TV, just get a movie, no commercials.
