      Based on the beloved Australian legend of Red Dog, a one-of-a-kind canine known for wandering in Western Australia during the 1970s, this family film explores the origin of a classic story.

      After his father dies and his mother is placed in a mental hospital, young Mick is sent to live with his grandfather on a cattle station in the Australian outback, an environment that is completely foreign to him. After a terrible storm, he discovers a puppy covered in blue paint stranded in a tree. Though it takes some convincing, Mick’s grandfather grudgingly allows the boy to keep the dog, now named Blue. The two misfits become inseparable and develop a bond that changes both of their lives forever.

      Featuring beautiful cinematography and excellent performances, RED DOG: True Blue is an entertaining and engaging coming-of-age story, with a wonderful cast of characters, that subtly touches on some deeper and contemporary issues.
