Great movie!!!
23 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have seen. Great for the whole family. A moving, inspirational and uplifting film, based on a true story. You will fall in love with Susie. Susie plays herself halfway through the movie and is a true star. Donna Lawrence's survival of a near fatal dog attack and Susie's survival of an attack by a human, and how they merge together to fight for stronger animal cruelty laws, is truly remarkable. Their bond is so strong and their faith remarkable. There are funny, sad and moving, moments, throughout the movie. Loved the real pictures at the end of the movie. I would highly recommend this movie!
