“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”

As his family flees the apocalypse, a little boy is forced to leave behind his dog, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Stanley. Alone, afraid but undeterred, Stanley picks up the boy’s missing shoe and embarks into the unknown. As Stanley combs through the ravaged city and gets closer to his owner, things take a turn for the worse as an army of hungry zombies converge on Stanley.

Written and directed by John Cody Kim.
