The story of a man, his dog, and the end of the world.

Director’s Statement

We’ve all been through some kind of terrible breakup. Often in that moment it can seem like the end of the world. The funny thing is, the end of the world is a whole lot worse. I was in Hawaii the day the day the warnings came: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER.” Every problem I thought I had, immediately became unimportant. Obviously, the whole thing ended up being a false alarm, but it forever changed my perspective for a lot of things. You only think you know how you’ll react in a moment like that. I never would have thought I’d spend the last two minutes of my life brushing my teeth so I wouldn’t die with bad breath. But even more than that, the people that you really love, and love you, emerge in unimaginable ways.

In a way, that’s kind of what this film is about. And while it’s certainly a dark film, I’d like to believe there’s a little bit of hope in it as well. There will always be bad times. Don’t let those destroy you. Because while you may realize it, there’s love for you somewhere… even if it’s just from a very tiny dog.
