Synopsis

An American college professor finds an abandoned puppy at the train station and takes him home temporarily, planning to return him to his owner as soon as possible. But nobody claims the puppy and the professor adopts him, naming him 'Hachi' - Japanese for good fortune. Over the years Professor Parker and Hachi form a powerful bond, despite Hachi’s refusal to do normal 'dog' things like chase a ball or sit on command. Based on a true story from Japan, this is a heart-wrenching tale of the intense loyalty between a man and his dog.
