Before he can save them all, he first has to save himself.
Jonothon Doge, known simply as DOG, was a Vietnam Military War Dog Handler. He's now a Retired K-9 Sheriff with a drinking problem. Racked by horrible guilt, he reluctantly returns to his small hometown after his estranged sister's midnight plea. Dog sniffs around only to discover an underground crime ring. He warns the crime boss, "It's better to let a sleeping Dog lie," before they try to kill him. Dog hides licking his wounds until he can dig up the strength within himself to takedown the badguys. His redemption is revenge for all the right reasons.

There is a difference between trying to make a good movie...and trying to make a movie, to do good.
