20 years in the future, canine flu spreads throughout a Japanese city. Doctors are concerned the flu will cross into the human population, so all dogs are banished to a distant island. The first dog exiled is Spots, the dog belonging to Atari Kobayashi, a 12-year-old who is the mayor's ward. After six months, Atari hijacks a plane to go to the island to look for his dog. He crashes and is saved by a group of dogs, and the group helps Atari search for Spots. Led by the dog Chief, they fight and beat a group of robot dogs sent by the mayor to retrieve Atari. The dogs reminisce about their former lives with families in Japan. Atari discovers that Chief is actually a brother to Spots, which helps them bond and grow closer. The group continues to look for Spots. Once he is found, the dogs learn of a plot to kill all the dogs on the island, and they must fight to save themselves.

movie facts

There is not actually an island for dogs in Japan, but there is one for rabbits! The island of Ōkunoshima is home to numerous feral rabbits that live on the island. The rabbits are tame and will approach humans, unlike most wild rabbits. They are the descendants of rabbits who were intentionally put there when the island was planned to become a park after World War II.
