Marona is a mutt whose life leaves deep traces among the humans she encounters. After an accident, she reflects on all the homes and different experiences she’s had. As Marona’s memory journeys into the past, her unfailing empathy and love brings lightness and innocence into each of her owners’ lives, in this beautiful and deeply emotional animated story of an average dog and her extraordinary life.

“This movie appreciates the difficulties animals must have navigating a world dominated by humans. It asks viewers to appreciate what’s important to a dog, and how mammals with short life spans might perceive time, relationships, and memory.” (Matt Zoller Seitz,

“Director Anca Damian’s film is more thoughtful and emotionally realized than the carnival rides that dominate the American animated scene. There’s nothing formulaic about it.” (LA Times)
