Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009)
Release Date: 12 March 2010
In a Buddhist temple, a monk packages up a little Akita puppy and sends it via airmail to America. By pure chance, the puppy wriggles free from its crate at a small-town station, just as Parker Wilson is coming home. The music professor takes the animal to his heart, despite warnings from his wife Cate. Even morning Hachi walks Parker to the station and returns to greet his master at the same time every evening, inspiring the local community with his unswerving loyalty.
