Wow! What a fantastic emotional ride. So rare to have movies take you through such an emotional journey! Was amazed with August Maturo's performance as the little boy who gets taken away first from his family, then from his family dog to be thrown into a concentration camp during World War 2. Full of surprises and a beautiful story of survival, loyalty and the unbreakable connection between a boy and his dog, get your Kleenexes ready and watch this one with no interruptions. 10 out of 10. Highly recommend for all ages 👍👍
