Hachi: a Dog's Tale


PUBLISHED: 3rd March 2010
ANNOTATION:
This heartwarming true story is an American adaptation of a Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko.

Sadly his master departs one day, passes away and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station the very next day, and every day for the next nine years to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and above all unyielding loyalty.
