Synopsis

Willie is a shy 8-year-old living in the small town of Yazoo, Mississippi during the 1940s. When his only friend Dink is sent away to war his parents give him a puppy for his 9th birthday to fill the gap. Turning his life into one of fun and adventure, Skip forces Willie out of his shell by helping him make friends with everyone in the town, beat his bullies and even get a girl! Facing the challenges of growing up together, this moving tale (which is based on a true story) proves that man’s best friend is most definitely a dog.
