But first, he needs to find a home and manage not to flunk out of community college. With ninety days left before he ages out of foster care, Alex has to get it together, or risk going back to the world he’s trying to escape.

We Don’t Deserve Dogs

A contemplative odyssey across our planet, looking at the simple and extraordinary ways that dogs influence our daily lives.

Former child soldiers in Uganda. The local pub in a Scottish town. A dog walker on the streets of Istanbul. A kaleidoscope of unconventional portraits from fascinating locations.

People need dogs, and perhaps they need us, but what do humans do to deserve the unconditional love they provide?

Please note that due to our screening agreement for this film, We Don’t Deserve Dogs is limited to the first 350 viewers.
