PlotToby McTeague (Yannick Bisson) is a teen-aged boy, living in a
flyspeck town in Northern Canada with his father and younger brother. Toby's
thriving livelihood, raising and training sled dogs, is threatened by a dip in
the local economy. His problems are intensified by the ongoing hostilities
between Toby and his dad (Winston Reckert). Running away from home, Toby makes
the acquaintance of elderly Indian chief George Wild Dog (George Clutesi), who
years earlier had been "shaman," or spiritual advisor, to Toby's father. It is
Chief Wild Dog who mystically brings father and son together at the film's
climax, in addition to rescuing Toby's sled-dog business in a near-miraculous
fashion. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
