[ Story ]

A Labrador Retriever born with a distinctive marking on its belly is raised by a couple (Kagawa Teruyuki and Terajima Shinobu) who name him "Quill." On his first birthday, the mischievous puppy begins training as a guide dog under the watchful eye of trainer, Tawada (Shiina Kippei), and eventually becomes a partner to the curmudgeonly Watanabe (Kobayashi Kaoru), a visually impaired man who has trouble coming to terms with the dog's presence. As Quill gradually grows into a dependable and trustworthy companion, Watanabe begins to form a loving bond with his new friend and the two build a happy life together. Nevertheless, there comes a time when we must say goodbye to the ones we love, and inevitably that day also comes for Watanabe and Quill.
Director Sai Yoichi (Blood and Bones, Doing Time) helms this poignant true story that became a major box office success throughout Asia and is also set for a Hollywood remake.
