Double bill of animated tales following the adventures of Balto (voiced by Kevin Bacon): a half husky dog, half wolf who does not feel he fits into either family.
In 'Balto' (1995), he becomes a hero when a diptheria epidemic and blizzard combine to threaten the lives of the children of Nome, as he has to lead a team of sled-dogs over 600 miles to obtain the life-saving medicine.
In 'Balto 2: The Wolf Quest' (2000), Balto and his husky mate Jenna have had a litter of puppies and are doing their best to ensure that they all find a good place within human homes.
However, no family seems to want to adopt their daughter Aleu, who is noticeably different to all the other puppies.
When Balto then tells Aleu about her wolf heritage, she becomes very upset and runs away; Balto follows after her, and soon father and daughter are caught up in an exciting adventure of self-discovery in the frozen north.
