Yes! we are back with some more recommendations! This time we have a couple of Animation films.
In this animated feature, a deadly diphtheria epidemic strikes the remote town of Nome, Alaska. With the life-saving medicine located hundreds of miles away, the residents decide to send out a sled-dog team. Balto (Kevin Bacon) — a half-wolf dog ignored by all except a goose, Boris (Bob Hoskins), and two polar bears — is chosen to run but is disqualified by lead dog Steele (Jim Cummings). When the other dogs get lost in the snow, Balto risks his life to rescue them and deliver the medicine.
