This is a based in fact hero story about a battle dog and it’s female Marine handler who both got damaged in Iraq. It is a very well told story that is worth viewing. It does not glorify the Iraq war. The war is a part of the story because it is the backdrop for the story. The acting is believable and the story telling is quite thorough. It gives us a real sense of what this person and her pooch went through. In so doing we can better imagine the brutal wildness of these desert wars the United States has for 16 years been a central part of.
