A movie that billed Creator/PaulWalker as the star, but ultimately was stolen by the dogs in the film.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The true story behind this film was the 1958 Japanese scientific expedition to the South Pole. When the crew had to leave due to extreme weather conditions, they left their fifteen Sakhalin huskies behind thinking that they would come back and get them. However, they found that they couldn't due to fuel shortage and didn't return for a year. When they did, they were greeted by two dogs who had managed to survive. Not quite as cheery an ending as Disney would like, but still pretty remarkable considering that huskies can only survive for about a month in that kind of environment.
