ABOUT THE FILM
Our existential connection with “man’s best friend” is explored in this affectionate and astute snapshot of six impressive service dogs – from an unexpected variety of breeds – faithfully supporting people with a range of special needs. With curiosity and genuine concern, award-winning Dutch documentarian Heddy Honigmann gently interrogates the owners about their relationships with their service animals. Is it love, loyalty or simply a working relationship? This heartfelt yet thoroughly unsentimental ode to the indomitable spirit of people with disabilities is also a bittersweet meditation on the deep bonds between people and dogs in the limited time they share with us.
