A fine movie … Neither Angus nor his dog is the true protagonist. Rather, the hero is their friendship.”

William F. Powers, Washington Post

Kids of all ages will be thrilled, chilled, and touched by this captivating boy-and-his-dog survival yarn, the final movie of award-winning Vancouver writer-director Phillip Borsos (The Grey Fox, Bethune, One Magic Christmas). The exciting tale concerns 14-year-old Angus (Jesse Bradford) and his new Golden Labrador, named Yellow, who find themselves lost in the B.C. wilderness after a boating accident. Stranded far from civilization, the two must rely on Angus’s wilderness survival skills and Yellow’s exceptional intelligence to find food, fend off bad weather, and deal with the hazards of the forest. Bruce Davison and Mimi Rogers play Angus’s anxious parents. Borsos’s lovingly crafted, beautifully filmed family adventure was shot on location on B.C.’s Gulf Islands.
