ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of ATARI KOBAYASHI, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies to Trash Island in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.

Jeff Goldblum said the film would be "Japanese Influenced."
Near the beginning of the film, a pack of white dogs walk up to a bag of garbage that was dumped in front of them before being confronted by Chief's pack. The film then cuts to a wide-shot of the packs snarling at each other from either side with the bag in the middle, even though it was right in front of the white-furred pack in the previous shot.
