Synopsis:
The timeless, unbreakable bond between a boy and his faithful dog is put to the ultimate test in 1930's Germany, in the heartwarming family drama 'Shepherd: The Story of a Jewish Dog'. When the Nuremberg Laws are passed forbidding Jews to own pets, Kaleb, a German Shepherd, is separated from his Jewish family and his beloved 10 year old master, Joshua (August Maturo). Kaleb becomes a street dog, is captured and eventually adopted by an SS dog trainer (Ken Duken) at a Nazi work camp where Kaleb has now been trained to help round up and terrorize Jewish prisoners.
But one day when a new trainload of prisoners arrives at the camp, Joshua steps out of that train and the dog rediscovers his unwavering loyalty. Together the pair attempts to escape the camp and begin the perilous journey to freedom. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Lynn Roth and based on the bestselling Israeli novel by Asher Kravitz, this sensitively told story of love, loyalty and courage is appropriate for viewers of all ages.
