One plucky canine proves why dogs are our best friends

 

A man walks into a bar in the dusty town of Dampier to find the landlord and his friends nursing a sick dog. When asking what happened, he is told the true story of Red Dog and his travels through the Australian Outback. He touches the lives of all the lost souls in this desolate mining town, awakening the inhabitants and leaving them with lasting lessons about life, loss and love. The nomadic canine is friends with everyone but chooses American driver John to be his one true master, a man who is as rootless as his new companion. Adapted from the novel by Louis de Bernieres and with a 70s rock soundtrack, Red Dog has become one of the 10 highest grossing Australian-made films of all time, winning numerous audience awards at international festivals and winning over audiences from all walks of life.
