Director: Robert Grabow, Michael Peterson, Andrew McGinn

Matt, a loner alcoholic at rock bottom, struggles to maintain sobriety for 30 days so he can honor his mother’s dying wish, to visit her in hospice, sober. His book-thumping AA sponsor, Fred, offers him refuge at his farm, where Matt meets Yup’ik, a stray dog — played by a real-life Husky rescue — with a unique athletic talent. The man and dog relationship is challenging at first, but with the help of a close-knit Montana community, the two strays find a connection and discover what it takes to pull through to the finish line.
