Benjy (Juttner) is a six-year-old Canadian boy who prefers the company of animals rather than humans, and tries to spend as much time as possible with his furry friends. His parents realize this could eventually become a problem, but don't have the heart to take away Benjy's only pleasure.

The boy befriends a badger, and when the animal disappears, Benjy sets out to find his friend. In the course of his search, Benjy gets trapped in a raging river and winds up being carried far from his home.



The Boy Who Talked to Badgers was filmed on location in Alberta, Canada.
