The story basically is that the Grandson of a well known deceased crackpot explorer is obsessed with the story of Atlantis and believes it to be true. To make a long story short a wealthy man and friend of the Grandfather's funds the exploration and puts together a team designed to help him prove his Grandfather's theories.
The film and some special features are subtitled for the deaf in English.
The story is decent, and I don't think there is a Disney film that is not worth watching with your children. They all belong to a set of films unique in the world. There is only one Disney.
