Twelve year-old Freddie lives with his father, a police officer. Freddie has no friends and is bullied. One day, when Freddie sees a dog being mistreated by his owner, he decides to do something about it. During a terrible storm, he abducts the dog and calls it Storm. Storm is an unusually fast runner so Freddie brings him to a nearby dog racetrack. Storm makes a good first impression and dog trainer Sofie offers to help. When Freddie's father discovers Storm, he demands that it be returned. Freddie gets sick with sorrow and his father realizes that Freddie will have to buy Storm; but, the owner is greedy and in order to keep the dog Freddie binds himself to an unreasonable installment plan that is impossible to pay off. He enters Storm in the Danish dog racing championship and, if Storm wins the first prize, Freddie will finally be free of debt and the rightful owner. In his struggle to keep the dog, he wins the respect of his schoolmates; even Dad has his life turned upside down.

Finally, a great one.

Good film but why are the bullies as children not allowed or seen bad but the adults that are bullies considered woman training her dog calls the guy that likes her "poodle head" in remark about his hair etc. If I was a child I would be confused. Perhaps good discussion with child why it is not ok for anyone.

Pleasing heart warming movie to soothe the soul.

Can't help liking a film about a boy and his dog. Thought this one was well done without the usual cliches

great movie

Thumbs Up!!!!!

This is a fantastic movie. It shows love and the triumph of a bullied child and an abused dog. The child turns into the class hero, and the dog turns into a champion racer.
