Sebastian and his big shaggy dog, Belle, embark on an exciting rescue mission in this beautifully photographed adventure film.
World War II has ended, and Sebastian eagerly awaits the return of Angelina, who is like a mother to him. But bad news arrives—the plane Angelina was on has crashed, and there are no known survivors. Sebastian believes she’s still alive, as does his grandfather, César, who knows that to find her they will need the help of Pierre, an ill-tempered pilot who knows a secret about Sebastian’s past.
Although they are forbidden to do it, Sebastian and Belle stow away on Pierre’s plane. After they are forced to make an emergency landing, the trio head out on foot to search for Angelina. Joined by Sebastian’s new friend, Gabriel, the group brave a forest fire, wild animals, and rugged mountain terrain, never giving up hope that they will succeed in finding the missing woman.
Christian Duguay’s film is filled with breathtaking scenery. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this exciting film on the big screen!
HOW WE HANDLE SUBTITLES
To enhance our young viewer’s appreciation of foreign-language films, we have readers red the subtitles aloud. We play the readings through individual headsets.
