Bolt is a super dog who always saves his owner, Penny from the evil, Dr. Calico. Or so he thinks. Bolt thinks he has real powers, but they are just special effects for a TV show. And Bolt doesn't realize that. Since Bolt doesn't realize he's part of a TV show, when the studio makes an episode where Penny gets kidnapped, Bolt accidentally gets shipped to New York. And there, he meets two new friends, Mittens and Rhino, who help him get home.
