Balto is a half wolf – half dog that lives in the city of Nome, Alaska. All the humans and dogs don’t like him and avoid him because he’s half wolf. Boris a Russian Goose, Muk and Luk – two polar bears are his only friends.
One night, when Balto walks through the city of Nome, he sees Jenna a female Husky, who he really likes, looking at something through a window. He goes to her and tries to talk to her, but she’s sad as her master Rosy, a little girl, is ill. They later find out that she and many other children are infected with Diphtheria and the doctor has run out of the antitoxin.
A request for the antitoxin is placed, but for them to bring it to Nome, they need to make it to the rail line Nenana, as it was impossible to transport it by ship or by flight. So a race is organized to choose the best sleigh dogs. Balto takes part and wins, but is not selected as Steele the Siberian Husky – the evil leader of the pack, tricks the musher into thinking that Balto is still a wild wolf.
So Balto is left out and the dogs, lead by Steele, set out on their trip to Nenana. Soon news reaches Nome that the dogs have got hold of the medicine, but are lost on their way home.
On hearing this, Balto decides to go on a journey to help the dogs find their way back home. Boris, Muk and Luk join him. On this journey they get attacked by a Grizzly Bear, but Jenna suddenly appears out of nowhere and helps them fight the bear and in the process gets injured.
Balto makes Boris, Muk and Luk take Jenna home and continues on his journey alone. He finally reaches the sleigh team and offers his help, but Steele isn’t interested and it gets him really angry and a fight breaks out between Balto and Steele. During the fight Steele slips and falls off a cliff.
Now Balto becomes the leader of the pack and a journey waits, as he has to lead the sleigh team and the medicine home.
This is a fantastic cartoon movie, loaded with action, adventure and the beautiful sights of Alaska. The movie shows you how people give more importance to the superficial features than to the inner good nature of a being and it also shows that if you are persistent and loving people will start taking you seriously and respect you for who you are.
Both children and adults must watch this movie, which is based on a true story. It’s not only entertaining, but also brings out the nature of human beings.
