Set in the hauntingly beautiful city of Bucharest during a cull of stray dogs, The Wild Dogs weaves together a week in the lives of several of the city’s residents and visitors. Geordie (Fitzgerald), a visiting Canadian pornographer, Bogdan (Calota), a reluctant city dog-catcher, and Nathalie (Watson), the lonely wife of a diplomat, each risks losing everything as they become embroiled in the struggles of Bucharest's abandoned children, gypsies, dogs and beggars.
