Original Title in Japanese: Flanders no Inu
A relationship of undying love and friendship
This classic childrens story which takes place on the outskirts of Antwerp is a bittersweet tale about a young boy named Nello, his dear old grandfather Jehan, and their dog Patrasche whom they had rescued from the ravages and torment of his previous owners.
Nello is a kind and sensitive boy who shows a great appreciation for art and who is a self-taught artist with dreams of someday becoming a famous artist himself.
For Jehan, his only grandson means everything in the world to him. Being a caring and understanding man, his only wish is to see Nello lead a happy and healthy life.
Patrasche, who is forever grateful of being taken in by his new found friends, expresses his loyalty and constant devotion to these two kind and generous souls. Patrasche even helps with the pulling of the pushcart of milk, which is their only means of earning a living.
Although being quite poor and impoverished Nello, Jehan, and Patrasche are strong in spirit and rich in the love that they have for one another. It is this bonding which enables them to cope with the harsh realities of their lives and helps them overcome their everyday struggle to survive.
