WHITE FANG

Category: Edition 2018

Synopsis
For the first time the unforgettable novel by Jack London arrives on the big screen in a amazing animated picture. White Fang is a wolf that has a quarter of dog’s blood. He’s a noble and brave creature, and for this he will be victim of human cruelty. After being raised in the snowy, beautiful but hostile lands of the Great North, he is welcomed by Grey Beaver and his tribe of Native Americans. Here he is protected by men, but he will have to find a way to be accepted by the other dogs. Unfortunately, Gray Beaver will be forced to give White Fang to a cruel man, who will turn him into a fighting dog. Almost at death’s door, he will be saved by a helpful and loving couple, that, through love, will teach White Fang to dominate his wild instinct and become their best friend. A story about redemption described from the dogs’ point of view, and, above all, about the extraordinary power of love that inextricably binds dog and man.
