Call of the Wild is a 2009 family-friendly adventure film starring Christopher Lloyd, Ariel Gade, and Wes Studi. The movie follows the story of a young girl named Tracy (played by Ariel Gade) who embarks on an adventure through the wilderness with Buck, a dog she rescued from an evil dogfighting ring, and a wise Native American man named One Who Knows (played by Wes Studi).

Tracy's journey starts in the city, where she witnesses the cruel and inhumane treatment of dogs at a dogfighting ring. Disturbed by what she saw, she rescues Buck, a majestic St. Bernard mix, from the ring and takes him home with her. However, she soon realizes that she cannot keep Buck as a pet due to her living situation, and decides to set him free in the wilderness, where he belongs.

As Buck explores the vast wilderness, he encounters a pack of wild dogs led by Alpha (voiced by Timothy Bottoms), who initially sees Buck as a rival but eventually becomes his ally. Together, Buck and Alpha must protect their pack from danger and survive in the harsh elements of the wilderness.

Meanwhile, Tracy sets out to find Buck and stumbles upon One Who Knows, who has been living in the wilderness for years and possesses a deep understanding of the natural world. Together, they embark on a journey to find Buck and experience first-hand the beauty and danger of the wilderness.

Throughout the movie, Buck and Tracy both face obstacles and challenges that test their limits and push them to grow stronger. They learn important lessons about courage, loyalty, and the importance of protecting the natural world.

Christopher Lloyd plays the role of Moses, a wise old man who befriends Tracy and encourages her to follow her instincts and pursue her dreams. Ariel Gade delivers a heartfelt performance as Tracy, showing the audience her determination and compassion. Wes Studi brings depth and authenticity to his portrayal of One Who Knows, lending credibility to the movie's themes of respect for nature and a connection to the spiritual world.

Filled with stunning landscapes, breathtaking adventures, and suspenseful moments, Call of the Wild is a family-friendly movie that celebrates the beauty and power of nature.
