Set in 1938, a loyal collie travels more than 1,000 miles from northern Scotland to Yorkshire to return to her young friend. The dog, having been sold to a wealthy Duke because the boy's father was out of work, runs away and braves starvation and treacherous conditions to follow the pull of her heart toward the family who loves her.
Everything old is new again in the latest film about the beloved pooch with the I.Q. of a grad student and the instincts of a boomerang.
