Attention All Animal Lovers
What do you get with a woman recovering from life-threatening injuries from a dog attack, along with a different dog who has been severely beaten, set on fire and left for dead? A heart wrenching tale about the life altering course that takes place when those two lives intersect.
Their narrative became this movie which is based on the true story of Donna Lawrence who nearly lost her leg, and did lose the baby she was carrying after a brutal pit-bull attack. During her recovery, a friend and Donna visited a park where they thought they found the body of a brutalized dog. In fact, though, the poor dog, Susie, was alive, but just barely.
Donna takes on her husband, the justice system and the man who was responsible for the beating, all in an attempt to help Susie. She also has to face her own demons about the attack she endured and the loss of her baby. But will Donna really be the hope that Susie needs?
It is easy to get caught up in this story, and relate to the characters. This is a real David versus Goliath story–an underdog taking on the system. For the most part, this is a family friendly movie. However, there are some very graphic scenes showing Susie’s injuries, and detailed verbal descriptions of what the dog suffered. There are some especially sweet scenes of Donna, her husband and dogs at Christmas time. The movie has some great performers, including Susie herself, along with Jon Provost who played Timmy in the original television series Lassie.
