He and his pet soon find life in London is not the place for such and animal, so the two head for the coast.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY, THIS IS A TOUCHING AND TRAGIC STORY THAT IS INSPIRING AS WELL. NICE CAST, BEAUTIFUL LOCATION SCENERY. I'M NOT TOO INTO "ANIMAL" FILMS, BUT THIS IS ONE OF THE BETTER ONES.
