Run Time: 45:20

Synopsis: This remarkable story of an unlikely journey to freedom begins at a point of renewal. Discarded,
unadoptable dogs like Lindy are given a chance to survive and even thrive. Inmates like Perry redeem
their dignity by training these dogs in basic obedience. In parallel, these men are transformed by the
dogs’ unconditional love, which in turn “trains” the men to respect themselves and others.

These dogs become the good dogs they always had inside themselves. These men become the real men
they were meant to be. Perry says “This program has really opened me up. It’s opened my eyes. It’s
brought me to a new level of responsibility.” Men, once hardened to the world, begin to soften inside as
they realize they have done a good thing and can have a positive impact.

Dog Down. Dogs learn basic commands such as “Down!”—that can save their lives. Man Up. The men begin to take responsibility, gain confidence and learn to get along with others—qualities that transform their lives.
