Drama. On the eve of the Second World War, a hard-up Yorkshire miner sells the family dog, Lassie, to a duke who wants the collie for his granddaughter. Lassie keeps escaping home to the miner's son, Joe, much to the delight of both Joe and the duke's granddaughter, Cilla (who dreams of escape herself). Then Lassie is taken to the duke's home in Scotland, but, with Cilla's aid, she escapes and sets off on the long route back to Yorkshire.
