Storyline

When an insurance salesman is blinded in a boxing accident, his world is turned upside down as he has trouble functioning in his sightless world. All seem hopeless until he learns of an innovative European project that trains dogs as guides for the blind. He explores the idea and decides to train for a dog. He eventually gets a guide dog, but soon learns that he is barred from taking his needed companion into transit vehicles and public buildings and businesses. With a newfound friend, he must fight to make the country recognize that those rules are unfair to him and his guide. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

The parts of the film taking place in Germany were filmed in Leavenworth, WA. Leavenworth was chosen because it had been converted, in 1962, to a mock Bavarian village, and therefore required few embellishments to achieve the desired setting. See more »

Great actor, great movie! Good story revealing a story both about a man and his dog, while also telling the story about the Seeing Eye Dog Program when it first was established. I recommend it!
