Synopsis

Balto is treated as an outcast because he belongs neither to the dog or wolf communities in his isolated hometown of Nome, Alaska, and so lives on the outskirts with his adoptive family of a goose and two polar bears. However, when an outbreak of diptheria threatens the town's children and access to medicine is cut off due to heavy snowstorms, it is only the dog teams that have any chance of getting through the snow to find help. In the town's time of urgent need, will Balto finally be accepted as part of the team? Based on a true story, Balto's journey forms the course for the annual Iditarod sled dog race.
