A stray Labrador retriever is taken in by a family in rural British Columbia. The teenage son welcomes the yellow dog much quicker than do his two parents. During a coastal boating excursion, severe weather capsizes a boat carrying the father, the son and the dog. The father is rescued, but the boy and the dog drift to land in a lifeboat. The two are able to survive harsh conditions together until the boy is eventually rescued. The dog is presumed lost during the rescue as it falls down a steep cliff. While recovering at home from his injuries, the boy blows his dog whistle at the same moment that the yellow dog miraculously appears after finding its own way back home.
