~Plot Synopsis~
Displaying a range of emotions that put his human costars to shame, Lightning comes to the rescue
of little Baby Cuddles (Billie Jean), the daughter of murder victim James Belmont (Alan Roscoe).
Protecting the kid from all sorts of natural and man-made dangers, our canine hero reunites Cuddles
with her grieving mother Agnes (Jane Novak). He also tracks down the murderers and drags them to
justice. Lightning is an impressive screen presence, but there was only one "Rinty."
