Amblin Entertainment presents a dazzling, animated adventure about one of the most courageous canines of all time! Based on a true story, "Balto" will touch your heart. Part husky/part wolf, "Balto" doesn't know where he belongs. He's an outcast in Alaska, except to his true friends--Boris, the Russian snow goose; polar bear cubs Muk and Luk; and the beautiful husky, Jenna. 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 fast among the children of Nome. When a fierce blizzard closes off all routs of transport, there's no way to obtain lifesaving medicine...unless a team of sled dogs can race six-hundred miles through the blinding Arctic storm and bring back anti-toxin. But when the dogs get lost in the frozen wilderness, only Balto can rescue the team and save the children. Starring the voices of Kevin Bacon, Bridget Fonda, Bob Hoskins and Phil Collins, "Balto" is the remarkable tale of a hero who inspired a nation - and became a legend.
