Based on a true story of Gina, a wire-haired terrier, whose family snuck her out of Siberia and into the United States at the conclusion of the Cold War, this beautiful and thrilling tale follows Gina as her family travels by bus, train, car, plane, and minivan to her new home in New York City, where she slowly begins to believe that, just maybe, her new home isn’t so bad after all.
