Drama for family audiences. A stray dog called Bella, who was raised by a stray cat, is found and taken in by students Lucas and Olivia. Lucas cannot keep her, though, as his mother Terri (a depressed military veteran) is in a dispute with real estate developer Gunter, and pets like Bella are not allowed in the building. Bella is therefore taken to a new home in New Mexico, but she decides to embark on a perilous 400-mile journey back to Colorado, encountering bad weather, wolves, an avalanche victim, friendly hikers and a homeless wat veteran.
