As World War II is brewing, poor Yorkeshire family the Carracloughs are forced to sell their jdog Lassie to the Duke Of Rudling, much to nine-year-old Joe's (Mason) distress. Transported to remote Scotland, Lassie escapes and begins the long journey home, finding danger and friendship on the way.
Thanks to a relatively gritty setting and an estimable adult cast, this sentimental story is rendered bearable for adults and children alike.
