Twenty years in the future, Japan has an abundance of dogs. So many that they can't contain them all. The politicians decide to exile the canines to an island where trash is dumped. Rex, King, Duke, Boss and Chief form a band of alpha dogs who vow to find better food than what's left in the garbage.

When a 12-year-old boy crashes his self-made airplane on the island to look for his lost dog Spot, the alpha dogs and the other dogs on the island team up to help him.

  • 5 stars "Best Japanese animate movie. I did not find any problem with the language. I think it was teaching lesson. Yes it was some how an anime movie."
  • 1 star "Was eager to see this movie wuth our 3 year old Granddaughter. Glad she was not with us. It was strange, dark and very depressing. We like to be entertained and leave the theater happier and uplifted. This was not what we thought. Because of the add boards our Granddaughter wanted to see the doggie movie. The language barrier was also a problem plus the dark ruthless main character were just terrible. Not worth the money nor our time!"
