Bringing home the otter he admired in a London pet shop, struggling writer Graham Merrill (Bill Travers) soon realized that his apartment was no place for the mischievous new pet he named "Mij." Relocating to a cottage on the Scottish seacoast, the open environment-and the attentions of a friendly local doctor (Virginia McKenna)-allowed both to thrive. Charming family nature tale with the "Born Free" leads, inspired by the Gavin Maxwell memoir, also stars Peter Jeffrey, Jameson Clark. 103 min.
