“Life is to love, live and protect. Unconditionally.”

We may not tie it up in a bow but it emotes all the human emotions. There won't be a dry eye in the house and we think audiences are really going to love Man's Best Friend.

Art imitates life

The old axiom, ‘Art imitates life,’ is a prevailing theme throughout ‘MBF’ (Man’s Best Friend), as we follow Marine Corps dog handler, Sgt. Paul Landings (Mr. Perry), from the killing fields of Helmand Province, Afghanistan, to his struggles on the home front as a wounded warrior battling traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trying to ‘fit in’ and find a semblance of peace in his life with his dogs.

All in the family

At the epicenter of the state-side story is the Sawyer family. Highly successful businessman and mayor, Quinn Sawyer is also a recent widower with two teen-age sons to rear on his own. Eighteen-year-old Charlie is the local high school’s star football quarterback, a collegiate and professional baseball pitching prospect, and ‘All-American Boy.’ His younger brother Wyatt, loves his father and brother, but is highly and typically impressionable.

As the story unfolds, and the action moves to a small mid-Michigan courtroom, the lines between good and evil, right and wrong, and whether or not ‘you can go home again,’ are continually blurred.
