FROM THE NOVEL BY RICHARD ADAMS, AUTHOR OF WATERSHIP DOWN
A stunning animated adaptation of Richard Adams' novel, The Plague Dogs follows a pair of dogs, Snitter and Rowf, who escape from a research laboratory and try to survive in the wild with the help of a cunning fox. The lab director tries to keep their escape quiet, but as an increasing number of sheep are found killed, word leaks out ... together with rumors that the dogs might be plague carriers.
From Martin Rosen, director of Watership Down, The Plague Dogs features the voices of John Hurt, Christopher Benjamin and Nigel Hawthorne.
