Synopsis

Eleven-year-old Daniel (Matthew Harbour) is feeling abandoned. His mother died a few months ago and his father Mark (Patrick Goyette), still reeling from the shock, has buried himself in his work. That doesn't leave much time for Daniel and a rift of mutual incomprehension grows between son and father. Happily, Daniel can count on his best friends Colin (William Phan) and William (Wyatt Bowen), with whom he hangs around regularly and with whose help he is training an abandoned dog for the Superdog show.

His relationship with April (Annie Bovaird), a girl his age whose mother runs a dog pound, isn't nearly as happy. When all is said and done, however, Daniel manages to reawaken his optimism and his taste for life.
