When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen because its mixed-breed heritage is deemed unfit by The State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted, unloved and so-called unfit dogs rise up under a new leader, Hagen, the one-time house-pet who has learned all too well from his Masters in his journey through the streets and animal control centers that man is not always dog's best friend.

The filming and use of dogs was brilliant. I will watch again just to be able to take it in more slowly the second time around. As a lifelong dog lover, rescuer, adopter, this had great meaning for me, and it's not just about dogs. It is about man's inhumanity, domination, lack of respect and care, injustice, exploitation, brutality and cruelty imposed on all living things, human and animal alike.
The last scene was not intended to "wrap things up neatly". For me it was about starting to bridge a huge divide, recognizing massive injustice, coming to terms with the value of all creatures, finding respect for each other and the dignity that all life and every species deserves and merits. A recognition that we are all connected, and an attempt to come to peace and understand the complex effects and outcome of inhumanity. It was a beginning, not an end. In my opinion, truly a worthwhile and excellent film. I'll be thinking about it for a long time to come.
That being said, it's a very creative and moving movie that carries a message.
What if animals could treat humans like humans treat them?
Watch it. But if you love dogs, watch it with a heavy heart.
