Dogs in peril are what your kids will remember most about this film. The pups are left to fend for themselves over the winter, and their initial situation has them tied to a post and unable to escape. During the course of events, they fall from cliffs, and deal with freezing temperatures and storms. The most dramatic moment involves a surprise meeting with an aggressive seal, which bites one of the dogs. Other content concerns involve a man who falls down a crevice and later a cliff and breaks his leg. Two mild expletives are heard. In one scene, a man chews on an unlit cigar. A man and woman kiss a couple of times.
